So is it just inferred by context or are there other ways to say it to clarify which you are talking about?
Yes, context is everything in language and communication in general. Especially cultural and geographic context.
as an adjective it can mean daily or every day. as a noun it can mean diary or newspaper or journal.
mi - my possessive determiner all genders singular for 1st person singular
mí - me pronoun 1st person singular. If you know about grammar, it is not the nominative, accusative or dative case, but the prepositional case.
Examples of this last case:
- Move it towards me. // Muévelo hacia mí
- [Who likes icecreams?] Me! // ¡A mí!
As you see, it is used after a preposition.
mi perro - my dogs, you use mis when it's plural so "mis perros" more than one hope that makes sense

I didn't know a diary and a newspaper were so similae they could be used interchangably with one word in Spanish. If only there was a more specific word for newspaper... I think I'll make the word up now and call it "periodico".
When I first saw the word "diario" I thought it meant diary but it was newspaper. then I learned it had both meanings. Right?

I wish they wouldnt capitalize the first letter. My eyes and brain have gotten into a habit of searching for the first letter of a word...
I can hardly understand her--maybe because tv is too loud! But i put it up to my ear and most of the time i still have trouble understand. Does anyone have this problem?
Before they throw out new words it would be nice if they introduced them first.
Haha i love this thing i am getting used to it but i can not tell if it is bebe, beben, bebes
Tú (you 2nd person sing. Informal) bebes. Él, ella, ellos, usted (you sing. formal) (3rd person sing. or 2nd person sing. formal) bebe. Ellas, ellos, ustedes (3rd and 2nd person plural) beben.
Then there is also Yo bebo. Nosotros bebemos.
And in Spain: Vosotros (2nd person plural informal) bebéis.
The number of objects possessed. Mi is singular whereas mis is plural.
Mi is the singular form of my (so when a singular thing is possessed, like doll) Mis is the plural form of my (so when plural things are being possessed, like dolls)
"Mi" is singular. "Mis" is plural.
For example: Mi libro = my book Mis libros = my books
This has probably nothing to do with the lesson, but when do you use "me" or "mi"?
I find the Spanish possessive pronouns cute... "Mi diario" "mi libro" "mi gato" Sooo cuuute :-)
So I type what I hear then I do it then it says i'm wrong because i didn't translate. This needs to be fixed.
Just a tip, you can write "my journal" it is sort of a cognate but it still works!
