Usage notes[edit]

  • In colloquial German, no distinction is generally made between sein and seinen in adjectival use. Thereby the masculine nominative and accusative coincide. The same is true for other pronouns with stem-final -n (cf. meinen, deinen, einen, keinen).
  • The distinction is maintained, however, in substantival use, i.e. without a following noun.
