question about jiu.....ye

Posted by pretzellogic December 10, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi Grace,

I have a follow up question from our call last night.  You gave me the jiu...ye.... pattern, and I am confused.

wǒ jiùshì tōngxiāo yě zuòbùwán. (Even overnight, still not finished)

shouldn't there be a gōngzuò in the sentence?  So it should read,

wǒ jiùshì tōngxiāo gōngzuò yě zuòbùwán. (Even working overnight, still not finished)

Thanks,

Fred
