Usage notesEdit

The forms mi and mis are only used before and within the noun phrase of the modified noun. In other positions, a form of mío is used instead.

Son mis libros.They are my books.
Los libros son míos.The books are mine.

Besides being a pronoun, because mi occurs in a noun phrase and expresses reference, it also grammatically classifies as a determiner (specifically a possessive/genitive determiner).
