Hei, I know that in formal language my dog would be (minun) koirani, and that in more colloquial language it would usually be mun koira. (Hopefully that much is right.) However, there seem to be certain words where even in speech I hear the possessive suffix used a lot, at least in the first person singular: mieheni, tyttäreni, elämäni, etc. Are these forms more common in speech than mun mies, mun tytär, mun elämä? If so, what other words would tend to take a possessive suffix rather than the pronoun in spoken Finnish? Kiitoksia!
