Simple sentence structure 2

There is another kind of simple sentence in Chinese, but it's not exactly the same as English. Please read the following sentences and point out what's the difference. 我(wǒ)很(hěn)忙(mánɡ)。(I am busy.)[ps. the literally meaning of this sentence is I am very busy.) 我(wǒ)不(bù)忙(mánɡ)。( I am not busy.)



there is no verb in the Chinese sentence. In Chinese you only do write in these sentences subject and adjective like in the sentence 我很好。

As you see, an adjective can be a predicate by itself. But we normally put some adverb such as 很,非常to modify the adjective.
