I feel like this could almost be a michael jackson reference..
I came for the same... Het meisje is van mij OR het meisje is mijn OR both?
Can we also say "het kind is mijn" for "the child is mine". ?
No, you could use "het kind is het mijne" as an alternative. Though van mij is more commonly used.
could you say 'Dat is mijn kind?'
Yes you can :)
oh..ok..thankyou ! :)
why 'van mij' rather than 'mijn'? I was under the impression that 'mij' meant 'me' :S
'Van mij' is another way of saying 'mijn'. 'Van mij' could be literally translated as from me. Check out the tips under the lessons.
Anyone know how is the v pronounced in Dutch? Is it the same as a German v, like the English f?
Somewhere in between the English and the German v.
