come/go+do structure is frequently used in both oral and written English, and in both formal and informal occasions. For example,
1) Even as she made her way over to come talk to me, there was one more picture to be taken; one more person to hug. (from ABC news 2009-3-19.)
2) Go fulfill that dream. (from a textbook )
3) Somehow, I managed to pick up the telephone and call my mom in the middle of the night, telling her to come get me. (from a textbook )
How to understand and explain this linguistic phenomenon from both theoretical and practical perspective? Thank you!
