日本語「連れて行く」と「連れてくる」について 

日本語「連れて行く」と「連れてくる」について 

連れていくと 連れてくるのの違いをおしえてください。英語で答えがほしいです。よろしくお願いします。

I understand the 連れていく is when you take someone of a lower class(?) or somewhere so that I can basically say someone took ME somewhere to put myself lower, right?But for the 連れてくる, can I use it to taking someone else?

It's realluy confusing! I don't want to be rude to and my dictionary labeld these as a special class so I want to be careful.

Thanks for your help! 教えてください。ありがとうございます。(日本語はたくさん漢字をしりませんので英語の説明がほしいです)

The basic difference between the two phrases is in the last part; (1) 来る (describing a movement toward the speaker's point of reference, say "to come" in English) and (2) 行く (describing a movement away from it, say "to go away" in English).

So 連れて行く is like "to take someone away" and 連れて来る is like "to bring someone over."

These expressions are compounds of two verbs 連れる "to accompany" and iku/kuru.

So going and coming are not done by one person but by accompanying some one or some people in the process.

In my view, there is no necessary implication that 連れて行く is "when you take someone of a lower rank", except that the person could be either incapable of independent movement (as a child or a disabled) or might have to be moved against his/her wishes (as an arrested suspect).

If your dictionary isn't clear use 一緒に、as in 一緒にまいります "I will bring him/her" to avoid "lower rank" implication that the lexicographer seem to be worried about.

In sum, the difference is in the direction, not unlike between "to come" and "to go" in English.

お礼

First of all, sorry for my delay and thank you very much for your help! The explanation was really helpful and I totally understand.
Now I can use つれていく と つれてくる a lot in my daily conversation.

So, what is まいります? Is it keigo or somrthing ?

Thank you !

#1 again.
>> So, what is まいります? Is it keigo or somrthing ?

It is used when the 1st person is going (a case of kensongo and an opposite of keigo)

Application of use for verb "行く" and "来る" in Japanese is unique in below situation.
To go to a place where none of speaker A nor speaker B isn't now, we use "行く".
To come to the place where speaker A isn't and speaker B is, speaker A says I "行く" to speaker B.
In the same situation, speaker B says to speaker A that you "来る" to speaker B.
"連れて行く" means "take (someone) to (somewhere)"
"連れて来る" means "bring (someone) from (somewhere)"
When the situation is the case to use "行く"(See top of my comment), we use "連れて行く”
And for the case "来る", we do "連れて来る"
As you say, we do not use this expression when the
person who is taken is high level person. In that case, we use "お連れする"、"案内する", "付き添いする",etc.
These verbs do not contain neither of ”行く” nor "来る".
Belows are some examples:

"Hey Jim, this is Tom. Can you take him to the bar when I'm in the US?
"ジム。彼がトムだよ。ぼくがアメリカにいる間、彼をあのバーに”連れて行ける?”
"Hey Jim, he's our cliant, Mr. Thomas Clinton. Pls take the customer to the bar while I pay the bill now!"
"ジム、彼がお客様のトーマス・クリントンさんだ。ぼくがここの支払いを済ませている間にお客様をあのバーに”お連れしなさい”
"Hello, Jim. It's Steve. Can you bring Sala to the bar if you are with her now ?"
"もしもし、ジム。スティーブだよ。もし君が今サラと一緒なら彼女をあのバーに”連れて来れる?”
"Hello, Jim. It's Steve from the bar now. Can you bring the cliant here?
"もしもし、ジム。スティーブだ。今バーからだ。お客様をここに”お連れできるか?”
