Adjective

mi (first-person singular possessive singular, plural mis)

  1. (before the noun) Apocopic form of mío, my
Usage notes

The forms mi and mis are only used before and within the noun phrase of the modified noun. In other positions, a form of mío is used instead.

Besides being a pronoun, because mi occurs in a noun phrase and expresses reference, it also grammatically classifies as a determiner (specifically a possessive/genitive determiner).
