Comparative Sentences

Comparative sentences in Chinese are a fundamental aspect of the language, used to compare and contrast people, objects, actions, or qualities. The core structure of a comparative sentence in Chinese often revolves around the word “比 (bǐ)”, which means “than” or “to compare.” Another important element in comparative sentences is the use of “更 (gèng)” or “还 (hái)”, which both mean “even more.” These words can be used to intensify the comparison. Understanding and using comparative sentences allow speakers to express opinions, make evaluations, and describe relationships between different entities in a clear and direct manner.
