Catalan

Etymology

From Old Occitan mon, from Vulgar Latin *mum, reduced form of Latin meus, meum, from Proto-Italic *meos. Compare Occitan and French mon.

In unstressed position in Vulgar Latin meum, meam etc. were monosyllabic and regularly became mon, ma etc. in Catalan. When stressed they were disyllabic and became meu, mia > meua etc.

Pronunciation

  • (Balearic, Central) IPA(key): /mun/ (always unstressed)
  • (Valencian) IPA(key): /mon/ (always unstressed)

Determiner

mon m (feminine ma, masculine plural mos, feminine plural mes)

  1. my

Usage notes

The use of mon and the other possessive determiners is mostly archaic in the majority of dialects, with articulated possessive pronouns (e.g. el meu) mostly being used in their stead. However, mon, ton, and son are still widely used before certain nouns referring to family members and some affective nouns, such as amic, casa, and vida. Which nouns actually find use with the possessive determiners depends greatly on the locale.

The standard masculine plural form is mos, but mons can be found in some dialects.

  • meu

Etymology 1

mon

  1. I wonder

Usage notes

The adverb is only used in direct or indirect questions. It is usually located in the second place in the sentence, i.e. where one would expect to find the finite verb (cf. the etymology). The finite, on the other hand, is placed in the second part of the sentence, where one would expect to find an infinitive.
