Sentence Pattern: 像。。。一样 Question

February 22, 2010, 08:27 PM posted in General Discussion

Speaking of patterns, (in another thread) I have a question about this one from the intermediate Varieties of Candy lesson. The sentence given is:

他像狐狸一样聪明。 Tā xiàng húli yīyàng cǒngmíng.

Is this an acceptable alternative to the pattern?

他聪明像狐狸一样。Tā cǒngmíng xiàng hǔli yīyàng.

Another sentence from the lesson:


So, would this be an acceptable alternative?


Each sentence had the adjective placed in a different position.

I am having a bit of trouble typing in this little box, I apologize for any mistakes.
