This paper deals with the Verb-Verb construction in Mandarin with a directional complement. It is argued that the construction in question can be best derived through a transformation proposed here as PREDICATE-LOWERING, that certain types of constraints with regard to the semantic properties of the lexical items involved should be observable in the underlying representation, and that directional complements should be distinguished from resultative complements.
