I have two question involving 得. Please help me out.

  1. I wonder if separable verbs (verb + object) can be with 得 without repeating the first verb. For example,

    她吃饭吃得很多。or 她饭吃得很多。

Because 吃饭 is a separable verb, so can I say: 她吃饭得很多 ?

  1. In YES/NO question with 得, are degree adverbs needed?

    A: 你今天起得很早/早吗?

Thank you so much!

在口语中

她吃饭吃得很多
她饭吃得很多   #宾语提前了,宾语放到谓语动词的前面了。

这两种说法都有,她饭吃得很多,这句话有点特别,通常这样说,她字和饭字之间,有一个很短暂的停顿。

  • oh I did not make it clear. The 2nd is to ask for degree adverbs in YES/NO question, not the answer: 你今天起得很早/早吗?

1.can I say: 她吃饭得很多?

No, If you use 得 with separable verb, you have to either 1. Repeat the first part of the separable verb, e.g. 她吃饭吃得很多.(meaning she can eat a lot rice) 2. put 得 between the separable verb. e.g. "她吃得饭多" (meaning she ate a lot of rice or she eat rice very often)

"她饭吃得很多" has no separable verb (the only verb is 吃; 饭 is the object

More Example:

讀書,唱歌,喝酒 are all separable verbs

她讀得書多,所以不怕找不到工作 (得 is inserted between the verb and object part of 讀書)

她唱得歌多,聲音也變得好聽了 (得 is inserted between the verb and object part of 唱歌)

她喝得酒多,說話有點含糊 (得 is inserted between the verb and object part of 喝酒)

~

她書讀得多,所以不怕找不到工作 (no separable verb, 書 is the object, 讀 is the verb)

她歌唱得多,聲音也變得好聽了 (no separable verb, 歌 is the object, 唱 is the verb)

她酒喝得多,說話有點含糊 (no separable verb, 酒 is the object, 喝 is the verb)

2.are degree adverbs needed?

It is optional

Both 我今天起得早 (I woke up early today) and 我今天起得很早 (I woke up very early today) are legit sentences

  • In case 得 is inserted between the verb and object, are there any notices? Can this structure apply for ALL separable verbs?

(1) The question is: Can you insert 得 in the (verb + object = verb + noun) phrase? No. In this case, you use 的 before a noun.

For example, 她吃的饭很多. In this sentence 很多 is an adjective for the noun 饭.

In your sentence 她吃饭吃得很多, use 得 is correct. In this sentence 很多 is an adverb for the verb 吃, the second 吃).

(2) In YES/NO questions with 得, are degree adverbs needed? Yes, most likely.

Q: 你今天起得早吗?

A1: 是的,我今天起得很早。

A2: 是的,我今天起床的时间很早。

A3: 是的,我今天早早地就起床了。

In general, the structures of 的,得,地 are as the following:

(1) Adjective + 的 + Noun = Noun phrase = e.g. 这是红色的衣服。

(2) Noun + 的 + Noun = Compound noun phrase = e.g. 这是小红的衣服。

(3) Verb + 的 + Noun = VO phrase = e.g. 这是小红买的衣服。

(4) Verb + 得 + Adverb = Verb phrase = e.g. 这件衣服卖得太贵。

(5) Adverb + 地 + Verb = Verb phrase = e.g. 小红急切地想买这件衣服。
