Usage notes

The following rules apply to all Cimbrian possessive determiners:

  • They are inflected by number and gender in only exclamations.
  • Before nouns, they are inflected for number only and follow the corresponding definite article (a form of dar).
    • The plural ending is -en, or -? when the pronoun itself ends in -n.
  • Predicatively, they are uninflected and the definite article is not used.
  • Following bon ("of") or dar (the only surviving trace of a genitive definite article; used for all numbers and genders) they end in -darn.

Inflection

Inflection of dain
masculine feminine neuter plural
daindar daina daines daine
These inflections are only used in exclamations.
