Chinese grammar rules

Noun in Chinese is known as 名词 (míngcí).

Nouns often act as subjects, are modified by adjectives, and can be counted with measure words.

Nouns have four basic characteristics in Chinese:

  1. Mostly nouns are modified by a measure word.
  2. Nouns can act as an object, a subject, a compliment, but never as the result. Occasionally it can be an adverbial.
  3. Nouns are not modified by the negative adverb “不”.
  4. Nouns are not reduplicated (except for a cutesy effect )
