  2. (possessive) dative plural of dein

Usage notes[edit]

In colloquial German, no distinction is generally made between dein and deinen with a following noun, so the masculine nominative and accusative coincide. The same is true for other determiners with stem-final -n (cf. meinen, seinen, einen, keinen). The distinction is maintained, however, without a following noun.
