得 in complement of degree or manner

Posted by freddy1705 August 27, 2010 in the Group I Have a Question.

Hi everybody. This question belongs to the "I know how to use it, but grammarwise it does not make sense to me". Here goes: "Please speak a little slower" is rendered "qǐng shuō màn yīdiǎn" by native speakers, why is no 得 inserted between shuō and màn?

is it because the implied object 話 omitted?
