A dictionary can only go so far, esp. with an irregular verb like 来る.
Perhaps a 来い entry could be devised.

Many thanks for that.
The problem which I had was this: When I searched for each bit of the total expression I could only find what seemed like one suitable entry for "こい", namely: "こい; っこい", but that did not quite fit for the reasons previously stated.

Now I know that the "こい" relates to "来い", I can search for that and I get the following link:-

 来い (etc.) See: 来る

However, I cannot then go to (V) and find the "こい". I can of course now find that on another site.

I think that(when I searched for "こい" as part of the "a + b" approach to the parts of the total expression) if "来い" had come up as well as "濃い" and "故意" and "鯉" and "恋" and "こい; っこい" and "古意" and "請い", I may have been able to reach the answer on a simple process of elimination, but as it was I was left with uncertainty until you provided the answer.

= "聞かせて来い"

I have not changed the above because I may be up the wrong road, but with so many Google hits for the actual expression (聞かせてこい) which I was looking for it seemed to me that I should find an entry on the site for the complete expression as well as some help from the above entry.

I am taking it that "こい" above is based upon "恋".

As stated, the expression in the text which I was reading was "聞かせてこい". This I was taking, in context, as "he would love to cause the (the sound of birds)to be heard (by making a disturbance)"

As the above entry seems to be only applicable as a suffix to an adjective or after a noun, it seems that it would not be applicable to my search.

My point is this: that if the above entry is also applicable to a verb, my search would be a + b and possibly you may not wish to have a submission for the "聞かせてこい".
