Steven Chu Chinese Lesson 02- 02

 

01 Concept  

We put in between 2 nouns to show their relationship. The serves as ‘s in this case.

Format: noun + + noun

 

Example 1

= My book

 I / me

‘s

book

 

pronoun

noun

My

book

                     

Example 2

我們

= Our book

 We / us

‘s

book

 

pronoun

noun

Our

book

 

Example 3

媽媽

生日

= Mother’s birthday

 Mother

‘s

birthday

 

noun

noun

Mother’s

birthday

 

** The has to be used in the above cases.

 

Example 4

澳洲

總理

= Australian PM

 Australia

‘s

PM

 

Noun

Noun

Australian

PM

 

** can be or not to be used in this case. So,澳洲的總理 / 澳洲總理 are both correct.

**In many case, if the first noun is a country, company, institution, organization, etc., the can be or not to be used.
