Say It Right Series

有的 Question

Posted by tamutom September 15, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

All the examples with 有的 present complete, contrasting pairs. Is it allowable to make a sentence with just one? For example 有的人喜欢吃辣的. I suppose that in English, to say, “Some people like to eat spicy food,” implies that some people do not, even though it is not stated. Is Chinese the same?
