Sometimes, there is the definite article "as" before phrases like "minhas gatas" and other times, like now, there is just the possessive pronoun "minhas." In which cases is is necessary to include the definite article, and which cases is it incorrect to include the definite article?
Hey Paulenrique, I would love to take a look at the link, but the link isn't working, it just takes me to the "homepage".
really? it works all right for me. If you still don't get it, try going to "Discusson" at the top of your page, "Portuguese" -> "Top All Time" -> "Articles before nouns" =) hope you get it!
In this case the article makes no difference, but in "os pássaros voam" the article is necessary. i hope i help you
It's a slang. Not proper for Duolingo's prime translation, but it has its practical use, specially if you're the handsome type of guy.
no. meu(s) = my/mine (for masculine words). minha(s) = my/mine (for feminine words).
Thanks but i think this far along i know it, though it should help someone else.
It is refers as plural or singular when you refer to "gatas" with "minhas"... it is confuse to me.
Plural: Minhas gatas (both words are pluralized by adding "s"). Singular: Minha gata. In english: Plural: My cats. Singular: My cat.
PS. "Gata" refers to a female cat and "gato" to a male cat. So, the pronoun follows the substantive's gender. "Minha" for "gata" and "meu" for "gato".
You must use meu for masculine words, and minha for feminine words:
