Grammar, not 三字经

Posted by goulnik August 17, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

Now that I'm comfortable with most conjunctions, and before I delve into 成语, one an area were more examples would be useful is 3-characters constructs such as V-不了,V-不出,V-不到,V-得到, V-起来,V1起V2来 etc.

Not sure what these are called (resultative?), there are lots of examples scattered across expansion sections and in the dictionary but I couldn't find them in the Grammar guide.

Maybe it's just me but I have the feeling they're heavily used in speech, and whilst not particulary complicated they are extremely convenient and it would be good to have a list to refer to somewhere.
