- "Min" is used for singular nouns with the common gender, ("Jeg har min hest" = I have my horse, as "a horse" is "en hest"; common gender)
- "mit" is used for singular nouns with the neuter gender ("Jeg har mit barn" = I have my child, as "a child" is "et barn"; neuter gender)
- "Mine" is used for nouns in the plural form, regardless of gender ("Jeg har mine heste" and "Jeg har mine børn" - "I have my horses" and "I have my children")
Feel free to ask again if I didn't explain it properly :)
How would one distinguish by listening if it is plural or singular? There wasn't any context to help.
how would we know that the sentence was plural? I would have gone with "Jeg har min"
Why are we not enforcing 'I' when translating into English? 'i' is incorrect, it should be capitalised.
