Mi is the fourty eighth most common word in the Spanish language.
Mi, without an accent, simply means “my”. In this context, it is, in technical grammatical terms, a possessive adjective.
Mí with an accent means “me”. Here mí is being used a pronoun.
Have you ever really noticed how these slight vowel changes have a huge impact on the meaning of the word and its function in the sentence? The human mind and ear are amazing bits of equipment!
When mi is acting as a possessive adjective, it is mi in the singular and mis in the plural.
Here are examples:-
Mi reloj – my watch
Mis bolis – my biros, my pens
And here is an example of the use of mí, with an accent.
Para mí – for me.
So, there it is, number 48 in the top 100 Spanish words. A short, punchy, monosyllable with two meanings to its name. All power to its elbow!
