Verb reduplication with "yi"

Revision as of 08:03, 18 November 2011 by Jonathan.pope (talk | contribs)

One way to reduplicate verbs is to insert 一 (yī), in the following structure:

Verb + 一 + Verb

As with simple verb reduplication, this creates a sense that the verb is done briefly or "a little bit".

Some examples:

  • 给 我 看 一 看
  • 听 一 听
  • 试 一 试
