|dc|| contrast with verb-te+iku|
I'll go and buy (on the way to somewhere else)
|dc||maybe this grammar entry should be more ーてくる as it is about appending -kuru to compound a verb.|
|bi-ru||Maybe we could transfer that example into -nagara|| |
|dc||its done, on nagara page|| |
|bi-ru||As I found on (Takasugi Shinji's site) - contrast the difference of -tekuru and -teiku in the following:|
Both mean that prices continue to fall. Both tekuru and teiku indicate continuation in this example. However teiku implies motion away from, whereas tekuru implies motion towards.
You think prices are going away from you in sentence 1, such as when you don't like the trend. You think prices are approaching you in sentence 2, such as when you like it.
