1. 的 [de] – a possessive particle, placed after pronouns, not used to denote family and close relationships.
2. 的 [de] – is placed between the description and the subject.
|hǎo hē de chá
|róng yì de yǔ yán
|Piàoliang de cāntīng
If the description consists of one character, then 的 [de] is not used.
If this description is preceded by 很 [hěn] “very” / 太 [tài] “too” / another adverb, then 的 [de] is still required:
|hěn jiù de shū
|Very old book
|hěn hǎo de chá
|very good tea
|Tài hóng de qìchē
|Too red car
的 [de] is sometimes used to replace the noun in question in context to avoid tautology.
|Nǐ de yīfú shì shénme yánsè de?
|What color is your clothes?
的 [de] does not fit between a character and a noun when soldering (always used together).
