Steven Chu Chinese Lesson 01- 的01
的usually used in the
between of an adjective and a noun.
Example: 美麗的 花=Beautiful flower
→ 美麗 的 花
→ adj. 的 noun
美麗is adjective; 花is noun. So we put 的in between them.
02 Why put 的before
an adjective ?
We don’t have to use 的if the adjective is included in a combined noun (Adj. + Noun).
Example: 左 手 = Left hand
However, 的should be used in
between an adj. and noun (eg. 美麗的花) if it is not a combined noun.
If a word has more
than a part of speech, we should use 的if we want to fix the word as an adjective.
Using 美麗的花as an example again. 美麗can be a noun or an adjective, so we put的after it if we want use 美麗as an adjective.
