Come "over here" an acceptable alternative to come here?

What would be the difference between "Kom her" and "Kom hit"?

I think 'kom her' is just wrong. If there is movement involved then the correct word is 'hit/dit' instead of 'her/der'.

The instruction 'kom hit' implies the person is being told to move from there to here. I'm not sure how you could construct it without movement being involved.

As always, I'm happy to be corrected by someone with better knowledge.

I think of it as "come hither", thinking of Norwegian with Old English connotations makes more sense to me.
