So mina is used for describing a plural object and mi for a singular object ?

Min/mitt for a singular, yes.

So if min becomes mina when the object is plural, does mitt change to something as well?

Both become mina. :)

No, "min" doesn't become "mina".

For singular 'en' word it is "min"; for singular 'ett' word it is 'mitt' and for both plural 'en' & 'ett' word it is 'mina'.

Thank you! I just wanted to make sure I was thinking of it correctly.

Is smorgasar an irregular plural? I can't find the rule for this word

No, –ar is the regular plural for en-words.

Difference between mitt, mina, er. Aaghhh so confusing!!

I've seen Mitt/Min/mina for "my". Can somebody explain to me how each one is used?

MIN is for EN-words. For example, we have "EN bok", a book. When talking about your book, you would say MIN bok.

MITT is for ETT-words. For example, we have "ETT barn", a child. When talking about your child, you would say MITT barn.

MINA is for plurals. For example, with "en bok", the plural is "BÖCKER", books. With "ett barn", the plural is "BARN", children, because it just is an annoying word like that. So, when talking about your books, you would say "MINA BÖCKER", and when talking about your children, you would say "MINA BARN".

If you're wondering how you know wich words are EN and which are ETT, here is your answer: you don't. There are some rules, like if a word ends with "a", it's an EN-word 98% of the time, and words ending with "de" are ETT-words 84% of the time, but otherwise you have to memorize it. If you don't remember, pick EN, because about 74% of words are EN.

Hope this helped!

Hope this helped!

When do you use mitt?

For singular ett-words.

mina versus min?

Mina is used with plurals.

"Smörgåsar" and "Mackor". They are both correct in plural terms for "Sandwiches" in Swedish.

Yes.

Finally, you eat your own food and not mine
