“ai v bu v” is a common construction of a colloquial expression in modern Chinese,being frequently used and having special semantic meaning. This paper divides them intotwo categories, the type of “ai li bu li” and of “ai lai bu lai”. These two types share the samesyntactic form but are different in syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and they have differentorigins. The type of “ai li bu li” derived from the construction “dai v bu v” which was used inthe Ming and Qing dynasties, with the word “ai” taking the place of its synonym “dai” in theconstruction “dai v bu v ”. The type of “ai lai bu lai” is the contraction of the complex sentence“愛來就來,不愛來就不來”, and was affected by a special rhetorical method named “互文” inancient Chinese.
