When do you use "mere" (my) instead of "mera" or "meri"?
So far I've figured out these ones:
- masculine singular "mera ghar" (my house)
- feminine singular "meri kitab" (my book)
It seemed like "mere" was for plurals, but then I've run across a few singular uses of "mere", like "mere dada" (my grandfather).
What is "mere" for?
One use of mere you already mentioned is for plural like mere dost ( my friends). The other use of mere is for showing respect. Like when you are talking about someone elder to you that you respect you will not say mera dada ( my grandfather) you will say mere dada or mere papa( my father) . This is generally for males, for females you will use the same meri like meri dadi ( my grandmother) and not mera dadi.
