metlx Posted May 3, 2016 at 02:18 AM Report Share Posted May 3, 2016 at 02:18 AM There are words in dictionary such as: 有名 famous 有钱 wealthy 有哏 comical 有意思 interesting .. But then you see sentences like: 你觉得生活有压力吗? (Do you live with stress?; Is life stressful for you?) 刚刚他说考试有压力，… (He’s just said he is stressed due to the test.; He has a stressful test [on his mind]), and it makes you think whether phrases such as 有压力 and 有压力 can be viewed as adjectives - 有压力 stressful(?) 有兴趣 interesting(?) (in certain context) (Although I already posed a question about 有兴趣, but the majority already said 有 is not an intensifier which magically changes words into adjective by means of: X -> 有X) Would it be safe to assume that by adding 有 to X (->有X) SOMETIMES/OFTEN changes X into adjective (in order to understand a certain phrase correctly). I mean, even if you look at the english language for example, there isn’t much of a difference between interpreting adjectives in a similar manner: 有意思 has/with idea/meaning/interest/.. —> interesting 有兴趣 has/with interest —> interesting 有钱 has/with money —> rich/wealthy 有压力 has/with pressure —> stressful 有效 has/with result —> efficacious Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
