My in Russian

By | 01/16/2018

“My” means “мой, моя, моё” (“moy, moya, moyo”) in Russian. If we are speaking about a female, we say “моя” (“moya”), about a male – “мой” (“moy”), about a neuter gender – “моё” (“moyo”). In some cases “my” can be translated like “свой” (“svoy”). But there is no this possessive pronoun in the English language. So you should use “my”, “your”, “his”, etc. according to whether it’s the first, second or third person of a subject. The approximate version of “svoy” in English is “one’s own”.
