"It is my child."
Translation:Het is mijn kind.
I said "het is van mij kind." So when you use van mij it is after what is being possessed?
Yes van mij/van jou/van haar/van Vincent/etc. comes after the thing that is possessed by mij/jou/haar/Vincent/etc.
- Het is van mij, kind = It is mine, child.
- Het is mijn kind = It is my child.
Thank you!! So mijn is my and mij is mine? Just trying to clarify further.
