III. Sentence structures with resultative complements
The resultative complement is a verb or stative verb suffixed to the main verb. A few things to remember when constructing a sentence in which the verb takes a resultative complement are:
1. Nothing can be placed between the verb and the complement.
Wǒ kànjiàn tā le.
I saw her.
2. If le了is used, it should be placed at the end of the sentence.
3. If the object has a modifier, the object is often placed at the beginning of the sentence.
Nèi gè wèntí wǒ huídáduì le.
I answered that question correctly.
The following examples show how resultative complements are used in declarative, negative, interrogative and bǎ把 sentences.
