Son amie

Son amie

In some other lesson I read that we use ´son' for amie. This is probably to ease pronunciation. My question is what is the rule if there is an adjective between son and amie that doesn't begin with a vowel. Is son petit ´amie' or ' sa petite ami' correct?

Bonjour Meghna ! The ending of the possessive adjective is determined by the word directly following it, therefore you will say "ma petite amie" :) I've now added a note about this case to the relevant lesson. I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année !
