I have just seen this sentence “Komm doch bitte mal schnell her”, which means “Please come over here quickly”
When do we write “hier” as “her”?
June 24, 2019
This can be a tricky thing for non-native German speakers to notice: it isn't the word hier "here"at the end of the sentence because this isn't actually a preposition. In this situation, the full verb is herkommen "to come here"; what you're seeing at the end of the sentence is the separable prefix her, rather than a preposition meaning "here."
I hope that this clears everything up!
