语法点

1. 太 (tài)
adv. really; too; so; very; excessively

In Chinese, the adverb 太 (tài) is commonly used to modify adjectives. It is similar to the English words “really,” “very,” “so” and “too”. When used in this way, it follows the pattern below:

太 + Adjective + 了

This structure is used with Chinese adjectives to intensify their meanings.

In sentences that feature positive adjectives like 好 (hǎo; good) or 漂亮 (piàoliang; beautiful), adding 太 (tài) makes the positive meaning even stronger.

For example:

这个女孩漂亮了!

Zhège nǚhái tài piàoliang le!

This girl is really beautiful!

When 太 (tài) is used with adjectives that generally have negative meanings like 热 (rè; hot) or 累 (lèi; tired), it intensifies the negative meaning of the sentence. In this case, this structure is frequently used to complain about something that the speaker dislikes.

For example:

我今天累了。

Wǒ jīntiān tài lèi le.

I’m really tired today.

While the most common and basic use of 太 (tài) is with adjectives, it is also possible to use 太 (tài) with certain verbs. These verbs include modal or “helping” verbs such as 会, as well as some psychological verbs like 爱 (ài; love) or 想 (xiǎng; to want to, to wish).

When used to modify verbs, 太 (tài) follows this pattern:

太 + Verb + 了

For example:

爱喝茶了。

tài ài hē chá le.

He really loves drinking tea.

If you want to use 太 (tài) to negate an idea or claim, this can be done by adding 不 (bù; not, won’t):

Subject + 不太 + Adjective (or certain verbs)

In this case, 不太 (bù tài) generally expresses “not very,” “not really,” “not so” or “not too.” Note that there is no need to add 了 (le) to the end of sentences that use 不太 (bù tài).

For example:

我爸爸不高兴。

Wǒ bàba bù tài gāoxìng.

My dad isn’t too happy.

In this case, 不太 (bù tài) is paired with the adjective 高兴 (gāoxìng; happy). Notice how no 了 (le) is needed at the end of the sentence.

Let’s look at another example:

我爸爸不喜欢喝水。

Wǒ bàba bù tài xǐhuān hē shuǐ.

My dad doesn’t really like drinking water.

Here, 不太 (bù tài) is paired with the psychological verb 喜欢 (xǐhuān; to like).

Note that the Chinese adverb 很 (hěn; very) is often used to intensify the meaning of adjectives and certain verbs in much the same way as 太 (tài). However, 太 (tài) is the stronger of the two adverbs. In short, if you only want a little emphasis, use 很 (hěn), but if you want to go for maximum intensity, use 太 (tài).

2. 能 (néng)
v. can do; be able to; be capable of; possible

In Chinese, the auxiliary or “helping” verb 能 (néng) is generally translated into English as “can.”

能 (néng) is most commonly used to talk about someone’s ability to do something that he or she didn’t learn or study. In other words, it is used to talk about whether someone is able to do something, not whether he or she knows how to do something that takes time to learn.

When using 能 (néng) in this way, the following structure is used:

Subject + 能 + Verb + Object

Let’s look at an example of how to use 能 (néng) in a sentence:

吃六碗米饭。

néng chī liù wǎn mǐfàn.

He can eat six bowls of rice.

Translating the above sentence is relatively straightforward. Eating six bowls of rice isn’t generally something that one needs to study or learn about to be able to do, so using 能 (néng) works well here.

Let’s look at another example:

我爸爸一天喝不少茶。

Wǒ bàba yītiān néng hē bù shǎo chá.

My dad can drink a whole lot of tea in a day.

In this sentence, 能 (néng) is used to state that the speaker’s father has the ability to drink a lot of tea in a day. Since the action of drinking tea doesn’t generally require special study or training, 能 (néng) is the appropriate verb to use.

能 (néng) can also be used to talk about whether or not something is possible. It is commonly used to ask polite questions that would generally involve the phrase “Would it be possible” in English.

For example:

帮我买一点东西吗?

néng bāng wǒ mǎi yīdiǎn dōngxī ma?

Would it be possible for you to help me buy a few things?

When paired with 不 (bù; not, won’t), 能 (néng) is also frequently used to say that something is forbidden or should not be done.

For example:

这里不开车。

Zhèlǐ bù néng kāichē.

You can’t drive cars here; Driving cars here is forbidden.

The use of 能 (néng) in this sentence might seem confusing because driving a car is a skill that requires study or training to be able to do. Note, however, that this sentence is not talking about a person’s driving ability or lack thereof. Instead, it is talking about whether driving a car in a given location is allowed. Using 不能 (bù néng) here simply means that driving a car is forbidden.

Note that as you continue to study Chinese, you are likely to encounter two other auxiliary verbs that are frequently used to mean “can.” These verbs are 会 (huì; can, know how to) and 可以 (kěyǐ; can, to have permission to).

Although these verbs are sometimes used in a way that’s similar to 能 (néng), they frequently have different meanings, so it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the differences between these three helping verbs.

3. 了 (le)
grammatical particle. used to indicate a change of state or overall situation; now

了 (le) is a very commonly used particle in Mandarin and an important component of Chinese grammar. Due to the fact that it is used in many different ways and can have many different meanings depending on the context, 了 (le) can be confusing for beginners.

In this grammar point, we will focus on one of the simpler uses of 了 (le), which is to indicate a change of state or situation. When used to indicate a change, 了 (le) can be used with either adjectives or verbs.

When using 了 (le) with adjectives to indicate a change in state, follow this pattern:

Subject + Adjective + 了

For example:

妈妈高兴

Māmā gāoxìng le.

Mom is happy.

Because the 了 (le) in the above example is used to indicate change, the English translation “Mom is happy” does not actually convey the full meaning of the sentence.

Due to the use of 了 (le) here, it might be more accurate to translate the sentence as “Mom wasn’t happy earlier but now she is.” Earlier, she may have been sad, angry or simply indifferent, but now her emotional state has changed and she is happy.

In addition to its use with adjectives, 了 (le) can also be used with verbs to indicate a change in the overall situation that’s being discussed.

The simplest structure for using 了 (le) with verbs is:

Subject + Verb + 了

For example:

爸爸睡觉

Bàba shuìjiào le.

Dad has fallen asleep.

In this sentence, 了 (le) is used to express a change in the father’s situation or state. The use of 了 (le) after the verb 睡觉 (shuìjiào; to sleep) tells readers that he was awake recently but now he has fallen asleep.

Sometimes, the grammar of sentences containing the 了 (le) particle can be more complicated. For example:

我们家没有茶

Wǒmen jiā méiyǒu chá le.

We are out of tea; We don’t have any more tea in the house.

In this example, 了 (le) does not come directly after the verb 有 (yǒu). Instead, the object “tea” comes between the verb and 了 (le), but the overall effect still works to indicate a change of state.

Due to the use of 了 (le) in this sentence, we know that the speaker used to have tea in his or her house. However, that situation has now changed and the tea is all gone.
