Combining verbs with "bing"

Revision as of 02:39, 24 November 2020 by Malihua (talk | contribs) (→‎Examples)

并 (bìng) can be used to connect verbs. In this structure the two verbs should be of equal importance.


[Verb Phrase 1] + 并 / 并且 + [Verb Phrase 2]

Notice that 并且 is used with verbs, unlike 和, which is used with nouns.


Here are some examples:

  • 我 同意 并且 支持 你 的 决定。Wǒ tóngyì bìngqiě zhīchí nǐ de juédìng.I agree with and support your decision.

Rarely will a bare verb (rather than a verb phrase) appear both before and after 并且. Where this is the case the sentence will normally take the tone of an imperative, instructing someone to do something.
