Is it possible to say :明天晴天 or should I always use "shi" in this type of sentence "明天是晴天" ? If both of them are right,is there any difference between them?

  • 明天晴天 is the correct form, see "名词谓语句,sentence with a nominal predicate" e.g. "外国人实用汉语语法"quoted at previous Q "Verb used to deny age"

  • cf."实用现代汉语语法"(more complete than "外国人实用汉语语法" 名词谓语句 名词谓语句指体词性词语作谓语的句子。体词指名词、名词短语、代词、数词、数量词短语和"的"子短语, 名词谓语句的主语和谓语之间没有"是"子 。例如:(1)今天 除夕 。("除夕"是谓语)(2)A:你们都 十几 了?("十几"是谓语)B:哥哥 十八 ,我 十二 。("十几"是谓语,"十二"是谓语)(3)喂,你 哪儿 ?(打电话)("哪儿"是谓语)一、名词谓语句的类型(一)由一个名词构成的名词谓语句。例如:(1)今天 星期二 。(2)明天 中秋节 。(3)刚才还 晴天 呢,现在又 阴天 了。在实际语言中由单个名词作谓语的名词谓语语句较少见。 三、名词谓语句的用途(一)说明时间、日期, 天气 ,籍贯等。这类句子的谓语大多是名词、名词短语以及部分代词。谓语和主语有同一性。例如:(1)现在 十二 点。(2)今天 什么日子 ?今天"_五四_ "青年节。(5)他 英国人 ,我 加拿大人 。(6)他 东北口音 ,可能是东北人。

1 Answer 1


天晴 sunny (adj)

晴天 sunny day (n)

明天天晴 = (it will be) sunny tomorrow.

明天是個晴天 = Tomorrow is a sunny day.

If you wrote 明天晴天, it would be a noun (tomorrow) followed by another noun (sunny day). The verb 是 (is) and the classifier(個) are omitted.
