ABSTRACT

Modern Chinese "V Lai" can be used to express complex motion displacement events. This paper analyzes the characteristics of the conceptual semantic elements of the motion displacement event, such as the motion subject, the motion direction and the motion vector, the reasons and ways of motion, etc., and discusses the types of motion displacement expressions of "V Lai" in physical space and virtual space and the reasons for path expansion.
