1. My, mine. M’ before a vowel: m athair, m aran etc. Lenites all following consonants except broad /L/: mo chas, mo bhean etc.
This possessive is used with so called inalienables - things and concepts which from the Gaelic point of view "cannot be taken from you". This includes:
  • Body parts (those still attached)
  • Most blood relatives (except duine "husband")
  • Food and drink
  • Home
  • Clothes
  • Mental and spiritual concepts (mind, ideas, religion...)
  • Heritage (kings, queens, country, language...)
Most other items make use of the an X agam construction, eg an leabhar agam, an càr agam etc.
