Bazaar Malay verbs are not marked or inflected for number or tense. Present tense and Past tense are indicated through the use of temporal nouns which occur only at the beginning of the discourse. If there is more than one modifier within a Verb Phrase, the negator is the first modifier to come, the modal marker is the second to come and the aspectual marker is the last to come. Thus, the internal structure of the VP can be summarized as: (NEG negator, MOD modal marker, ASP aspectual marker and VH verb head). Data show that no more than three components appear and this is also true in Standard Malay (Payne 1970: 65).
