How to use structural particle 的 地 得 in Chinese 💖 的 (de) for modifying nouns 💖 地 (de), for modifying adjectives (into adverbs) 💖 得 (de), for modifying verbs 1️⃣descriptions + 的 +noun The description can be noun/adjective/verb or clause, I'll give you a example of each of them 🔸n + 的 + n (in this case, the 的 is a possessive particle, like" 's" in English) 妈妈的手机。Mom' s phone. 🔸adj + 的 + n 可爱的猫。Cute cat. 🔸verb + 的 + n 喝的东西。 Things to drink 🔸clause + 的 + n 有一只猫的女生。The girl who has a cat. (It’s the other way around to English. The clause that you use to describe the noun comes first) 2️⃣descriptions + 地 + verb 地 is used to turn adjectives into adverbs, you can understand it like the suffix "ly" in English. 她开心地回家了。She went home happy. 3️⃣ verb + 得 + description 得 coming directly after verb, connects verb with adjective to describe how the verb is carried out or the result of the verb. 玩得开心。Have fun. 吃得高兴。Eat well.
