    Urdu/Hindi: mere sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai

    Hello,

    Which of these is correct?

    mere sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai

    Or

    meraa sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai

    Both seem OK to my ears.
    Thanks.

    [mere sone kaa] vaqt ho gayaa hai

    meraa [sone kaa waqt] ho gayaa hai

    From the way I have grouped the words together, it appears to me that in the first example the emphasis is on "sonaa/sone", hence "mere" is declined in the same way. In the second example, the emphasis is on "vaqt which is linked to "meraa". This is how the sentences appear to me. Both are correct.

    Edit: The first example has one more meaning. One of "Goldfinger"'s clients might say to Mr. Goldginger, "It is time for my gold"!

    Abu Talha SaaHib has posed an interesting question. I would be interested in your rationale, UM SaaHib. Essentially I see them as follows.

    1) It is time for my sleep.

    2) My time for sleeping has come.

    ^ I just repeated both sentences in my head a few times and went with the one that sounded most familiar to me.

    Why does the first one seem "good in comparison to 2nd"? What are your views about it?

    Re: Urdu/Hindi: mere sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai

    If I may chime in, I'd go for mere sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai. The reason is that the expression ''sone kaa waqt'' can be more or less described as an idiomatic phrase. sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai ---> meraa [sone kaa waqt] ho gayaa hai. The other one, meraa sone kaa waqt ho gayaa hai is of course perfectly allright, where the emphasis lays on the need of sleep.

    Both are correct and popular, and the deconstructions have already been done by QP.
