#REDIRECT[[Verb reduplication]]
One way to reduplicate verbs is to insert 一 (yī), in the following structure:
<div class="jiegou">
Verb + 一 + Verb
As with simple [[verb reduplication]], this creates a sense that the verb is done briefly or "a little bit".
== Examples ==
<div class="liju">
* 给 我 <em>看 一 看</em>。
* 你 <em>听 一 听</em>。
* 他 <em>试 一 试</em>。
