Adjectival complement "de hen"

Revision as of 07:01, 24 October 2011 by Jonathan.pope (talk | contribs)

The complement 得很 is used after adjectives to add intensity. It is similar to adding 很 before the adjective,the main difference being that adjective + 得很 is more informal, and adds more emphasis than just 很 + adjective.
