Difference between моя, мой, моё ?
Can anyone help me in understanding the difference between моя, мой, моё ? I feel that they all mean same, but the spelling changes based on the context or the objects/subject before which we use it. which i am unable to figure out.
The gender of the word is not based on its meaning at all, but rather on the ending! Read the tips and notes if you're on PC, but keep in mind that words ending in -a, -ия are feminine, and words ending in -о, -е, -ие are neuter. All words ending in consonants are masculine, except for the letter -ь. Words ending in -ь can be either feminine or masculine.
Also, the plural form does not take gender into account.

- мои дети, мои цветы, мои советы
