English is head-initial while Chinese is head-final, which means the phrasal “head” (e.g. the head noun in a noun phrase) is normally placed at the beginning in English (e.g. the dog in the cage) but at the end in Chinese(Liu, 2017)
e.g. 1. The book I bought——我(wǒ)买(mǎi)的(de)书(shū)
2. The movie I watched——我(wǒ)看(kàn)的(de)电(diàn)影(yǐng)
