PronunciationModificar

Etymology 1Modificar

Old English mīn

PronounModificar

Patrono:En-pron

  1. Non-premodifying possessive case of I. My; belonging to me; that which belongs to me. (See usage notes below.)
Usage notesModificar
  • My and mine are essentially two forms of the same word, with my being used attributively before the noun, and mine being used in all other cases; hence:
    No, that's not my car. (attributive use)
    That car next to it isn't mine, either. (predicative use)
    Mine is the one over there, on the far right. (substantive use)
    Mine for only a week so far, it already feels like an old friend. (absolute use)
  • In archaic use, this word is occasionally used attributively after the noun, in which case mine is used:
  • In the above respects, this word is analogous to most of the other possessive pronouns, as well as a number of other noun modifiers, such as lone/alone.
  • Historically, my originally came to be used only before a consonant sound, and later came to be used regardless of the following sound. Nonetheless, mine still sees archaic pre-vocalic use:
