When to use être à vs the possessive pronouns? Spoken vs written or are they just interchangeable?
There are several ways to express ownership of something:
1) This book belongs to me. -- Ce livre est à moi.2) This book is mine. -- Ce livre est le mien.3) This is my book. -- C'est mon livre.
These variations exist alongside each other, just like in English. Basically, they are interchangeable, depending on what flavor best suits your context.
