This study is concerned with distributional difference of the deictic verbs in Mainland China Mandarin Chinese (MC) and Singapore Mandarin Chinese (SC). MC only allows U(Vmanner) + Vpath + Location + Vdeictic lal/qu 'come/go’", whereas SC permits other word order. This study aims to investigate the difference and find the possible constraints involved in such constructions in SC. [Peer Assessment Review]
