A serial construction consists of two or more verbs used in a series, often without any conjunctional devices. The second verb may follow the first verb directly, or the first verb may take an intervening object:
wǒ qù mǎi bào zhǐ 。
I’m going to buy a newspaper.
nǐ zhǎo tā yào shí me ？
Why are you looking for him? (lit. You look for him want what.)
