“COI”

 We usually heard these statements
• “Lấy cái tay ra coi!” (Take your hands off!)
• “Ngon làm coi!” (I dare you do it!)
• “Cho miếng coi!” (Give me some!)
• “Nói nghe coi!” (Tell me!)
• It is possible to see (“coi”) what is being performed (“làm thử”), but how can an utterance (“nói”) be seen?
 “Coi” originally means watching or seeing (“xem, trông”), but in these utterances, it plays the role of an expletive word in requests or enquiries.
