1 comment to mine – Possessive pronouns in French

  • Kathleen Meade

    In the sentence, “MA guitare? Oui, la mienne.” – is it usual to say it that way,
    and to not say:

    “Oui, c’est la mienne.” –

    For we’d say in English, “Yes, it is [c’est] mine.” ?
    Merci beaucoup de m’aider !!!
