  7. shaheer says:

    clear my doubt!
    in male,for “my sister” what we have to use? either “mere behane” or “mere behan”
    in female,for “my phone” what we have to use? either “meri phones” or “meri phone”.

  8. chaitanya says:

    why meri car, not pronounced as mera car
    why mera phone, not pronounced as meri phone
    both phone and car are things so why don’t we use meri for both

    • Learn Hindi @ Mind ur Hindi says:

      Car, Phone are nouns.
      Nouns have genders.
      Car in Hindi is feminine noun, so meri car
      Phone in Hindi is masculine noun, so mera phone

      • Hema says:

        How do we find out if Car is male or female ? Phone is male or female ?

        You have taught in earlier lesson that if a noun ends with aaa sound it is male and if it ends with eee sound it is female. How does car and phone fit in this context ?

        Would appreciate your response pls

        • Learn Hindi @ Mind ur Hindi says:

          There is no rule to identify the gender of a noun. The rule taught earlier is a general rule. It does not work on all nouns.

    I understand मेरी is singular feminine, however why in the lesson it says मेरा नाम टीना है |(mera naam teena hain)if teena is a girl would it not be मेरी. thank you for clarification.

    • Learn Hindi @ Mind ur Hindi says:

      Hi Jacita,
      First of all, thanks for getting started with learning Hindi at mindurhindi.
      Coming to your doubt, Mera is associated to the noun “Naam” which is a masculine noun.
      Hence “meraa naam” (My name)

  14. Jacita says:

  15. Jacita says:

  30. Jumana Hasin says:

    I have a doubt here.. My name is teena.. That is said Meraa naam Teena hain.. Teena is a girl, why dont we say Meri naam tina hain?

    • Learn Hindi @ Mind ur Hindi says:

      meraa is describing the noun ‘naam’ , not Teena.

      and ‘Naam’ is masculine noun, hence meraa naam.

  31. Irina says:
