The grammar of mandarin Chinese shares many features with other varieties of Chinese. The language almost entirely lacks inflection, so that words typically have only one grammatical form. Functions such as number in nouns or tense of verbs are expressed through word order or particles. The basic word order is subject–verb–object, and most modifiers such as adjectives and adverbs precede the words they modify. Chinese adjectives and prepositions are types of verb. And classifiers are required when using numerals or demonstratives with nouns.
