Definitions and meaning of mine
enPR: mīn, IPA(key): /maɪn/
From Middle Englishmin, myn, from Old Englishmīn, from Proto-Germanic*mīnaz, from Proto-Indo-European*méynos. Cognate with Saterland Frisianmien, West Frisianmyn, Dutchmijn, Low Germanmien, Germanmein, Danish, Swedish and Norwegianmin, Icelandicmín.
My; belonging to me; that which belongs to me.
Used substantively, with an implied noun.
Used absolutely, set off from the sentence.
(archaic)Used attributively after the noun it modifies.
a.1611, William Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act V, Scene 1:
[…] Flesh and blood, / You, brother mine, that entertain'd ambition, / […]
(archaic)Used attributively before a vowel.
1862 February, Julia Ward Howe, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", in The Atlantic Monthly, Volume IX, Number LII, page 10,
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord: / […]
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, as may be seen in most of the usage examples and quotations above. In this respect, this word is analogous to most of the other possessive pronouns (e.g. your vs. yours), as well as a number of other noun modifiers, such as lone/alone.
Historically, my 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, as may be seen in the 1862 quotation above.
