The context:The person who are saying these have been attacked and while he was running away got injured.Madoka finds him and she is trying to help him.

My question is:What's the function of と言う here?

1 Answer 1


As explained by istrasci here, in this case と is a quotation marker (the use of brackets also hints at that). So it literally means:

Say "run away without me".

Look closer, not all these options are about saying something. The third option is a different kind of action. So the brackets and と言う are used to make it clear what is a phrase and what isn't.
