What is the difference between 变 and 变得? Is 变得 a word in its own right, or is 得 some sort of complement word? For example, 眼睛变得亮晶晶。
得 is some sort of complement word here. It tends to be some sort of comment or description of the action in the verb.
The basic structure is:
[verb] 得 [description]
From your example
变 is verb, 亮晶晶 is description of the eye.
Thanks. Is it a result complement or state complement? If it is a result complement, does it need 得? If it is a degree complement, doesn't it need 很 as well? Is there another type of complement it could be? Nov 23, 2020 at 15:02
Is it the same as words such as 长得 and 觉得？ Nov 23, 2020 at 15:38
Is it a complement of state? Nov 23, 2020 at 17:54
长得,得 here use to describe the verb, same like the example I shown above. 觉得 is a word, you can't separate them, because 觉 has not meaning. 觉得 mean feel in English.– John JoeNov 26, 2020 at 3:06
