Sharing is caring!

  • I looked into ~ていく and ~くる. Is it safe to say that: Verb + ていく describes a motion going away from the place where the speaker is, Verb + てくる describes a motion coming towards the place where the speaker is, and that 飛び出す can be conjugated with out ~てくる?And also when it is used, is it to add emphasis to the sentence?
