VII. The complement of result used in bǎ把sentences
Because bǎ把sentences are used to point out what has happened to the object as the result of an action, the verb always has to take an element to indicate specifically how the object is consequentially affected or how someone intends to affect it. Therefore, the resultative complement is often used in bǎ sentences.
A. Wǒ bǎ nǐ-de
mén xiūhǎo le.
I fixed your door.
The desired result of ‘repairing’ is to make something work again---to be as good as before. The stative verb hǎo好 is used here to indicate the result of the action xiū修 (to fix).
B. Wǒ bǎ jīntiān
de zuòyè zuòwán le.
I finished today’s homework.
The desired result of doing homework is to finish it. Zuò做 indicates the action of ‘doing’ and wán完 indicates completion. With the modal particle le了 indicating accomplished fact, this sentence indicates that the subject (agent), wǒ我, has brought “today’s homework” to the stage of completion as a result of doing it.
