Simple Chinese sentences

In the present tense, where an English sentence would use the verb to be, a typical sentence in Chinese does not use a verb at all. Just the subject and the attribute are used without a verb.

The boy is strong.
Nánhái dà.
The boys are big.
Nŭhái xiăo.
The girls are small.
Nánrén lăo.
The man is old.
