Talking about giving and receiving (Part 2)

1. Kattekureru?/Katteageru

We learned the three words of “ageru,” “morau,” and “kureru” in the last episode.
These are verbs related to giving and receiving.
In the video, it seemed like “kureru” and “ageru” had another verb attached to them.
The verbs for giving and receiving can be combined with other verbs.

Lina: “Kono baggu o kattekureru?”
Brandon: “Baggu? Iiyo, katteageru.”

Lina’s question is saying that someone besides herself would buy the handbag, and give it to her.
When she said “kattekureru?” and raised the pitch at the end, she was asking whether he would buy the handbag for her or not. She was expressing that she wanted him to buy the handbag.
In return, Brandon said “katteageru.” He was trying to grant Lina's wish.
