语言点 Language Point
1. 看看/VV
汉语中表达动作时间短、尝试、轻微等意义时,用动词的重叠形式:V V。一般用于口语,使说话的语气显得轻松、随便。单音节动词的重叠形式是“AA”or“A一A”, 双音节动词重叠的基本形式是“ABAB”。
In Chinese, verbs can be reduplicated to indicate a change in the amount involved in an action. Verb reduplication may express a slight or lesser amount through the use of repetition. Single-syllable verbs are reduplicated in the pattern“AA,” while double-syllable verbs are reduplicated in the pattern “ABAB.”
例如 (for example):
① 我下周想去杭州玩(一)玩。
I want to travel to Hangzhou next week.
② 周末我得在家好好休息休息。
I have to have a good rest at home this weekend.

Let’s go to have a look, maybe we can buy something good.
