Catalan

Etymology

From Old Catalan meu, from Latin meus, meum, from Proto-Italic *meos. The feminine form was mia in Old Catalan, but this was extended to meva or meua by analogy with the masculine form. This happened because the -u was not understood as a masculine ending anymore, having been lost in nouns (unlike Spanish, Portuguese and Italian -o).

The weak possessive mon is also from Latin meus, meum, but as an unstressed monosyllabic form.

Pronunciation

  • (Balearic, Central, Valencian) IPA(key): /ˈmew/

Pronoun

meu (feminine meva or meua, masculine plural meus, feminine plural meves or meues)

  1. my, mine

Usage notes

When preceding a noun, meu is always preceded by the appropriate definite article.
