Can someone explain me the comparison structure 像 … 似的?
Why in this sentence there is 得 after 红？
Couldn't I have said this instead?
Is there a pattern/scheme that I can follow, so that it is clearer to me? Thank you.
In this context, 得（it is read softly as "de"）is a structural auxiliary word. It is used behind adjective for indicate the relationship between "he's face' "and "the apple". For another example like this condition: 她的笑容美得像花。( Her smile is sweaty, flower is also beautiful, and if you want to get them together,to build a relationship, you need use 得 connect them.) Wish to help you:)
