What is the Right Way(s) to use Ba3 Syntax

June 16, 2012, 05:13 AM posted in General Discussion


I am trying to understand how to use the syntax ba3 in my sentence structures. 

I understand that it can be considered as a verb or a preposition or even both. 


Its standard sentence structure is subject +ba3 +object (noun)+ verb. 


I am curious to know how this syntax is normally used in China (nowadays). 

Thanks for your attention!
