Translation of mon in English:

adjectif possessif

Au vocatif, on n'emploie généralement pas le possessif en anglais: ma chérie! = darling!; merci, mon Père! = thank you, Father!; oui mon général! yes, sir!; mes chers amis! = dear friends! On ne répète pas le possessif coordonné: mon café et mon cognac = my coffee and cognac.
