  • Use the pattern '是 ... 的' to put emphasis on the detail that goes in between 是 and 的 in a sentence. The detail is not only used to describes about an action of the verb, but also emphasize whom the action is taken. The grammatical structure is ' Object + 是 + [ the detail to be emphasized with whom the action is taken ] + Verb + 的 '.

  • Result complements are a kind of verb-complement construction which is composed of a verb followed by a complement. In English, we can differentiate between the concepts of ‘to see’ and ‘to look’ using different verbs and these verbs either include the result (seeing) or do not (looking). However, most Mandarin verbs do not indicate the result and the result complements therefore are added to the verb to indicate the result, degree or state of the action, for example, whether the action was done or not. a) Use the structural particle '得' to construct the result complement ( ' 得 + Adjective ' ) to indicates result, degree or state of the action with the grammatical structure ' Subject + Verb + 得 + Adjective '. b) Use result complement ( ' 得 + Adjective ' ) to indicates result, degree or state of doing something with the grammatical structure 'Subject + (Verb +) Objective+ Verb + 得 + Adjective '.

  • Use '' to put before a verb, together with the result complement ( ' 得 + Adjective ' ), to compare one (A) with another (B) with the grammatical structure ' A + 比 + B + Verb + 得 + Adjective '.

She just sat on my left.

Who are you waiting for? Who is she?
