For example, in 明心 that each can't stand alone, can it be used into 明完心 or 明了心? If not, why?

  • You can, if you’re using it as a V.O. that means: “express one's idea”

  • 《现代汉语词典》 has notes in word explanation that show whether it can be used in this way.

明心 can mean:

  1. 心思清明纯正: purity in mind;

  2. 表明心迹: express one's thought;

明心 is not that common. It's often heard in 明心静气.

I haven't heard 明完心 so far. But 明了...心 is possible because 明了 [míng liǎo] is a set word meaning 'be clear about'. For example, 明了你的心 meaning I understand what you think.

  • 明我的心 is ok. 明心明的大 is awkward.

  • What's your opinion of it? Nov 12, 2017 at 11:40
  • 明我的心 and 明白我的心 have different meaning. 明我的心 is short for 表明我的心, meaning express my heart/thought. 明白我的心 means 'to understand my heart/thought'.
