Synonyms of "Come" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Why and How come and what made you ?
A: To me, "why" and "how come" mean the same thing. "How come" maybe sounds slightly more childish and informal. "Why" just on its own, like "Why?" might sound a little demanding or cold. "Why's that" sounds more informal but also less demanding. "What made you" sounds like a person did something you wouldn't expect them to, so you're inquiring further to figure out their motivation.
Q: What is the difference between come back to you and get back to you ?
A: Come back is physically going back to someone.
If someone says "I'll get back to you." or "I'll have to get back to you on that [topic]." it can mean that they don't have some information, but when they get it, they will contact you to tell you.

A: "Do you know when the party starts?"

B: "I'll get back to you when I know."
or
B: "I'll have to get back to you on that." (I don't know yet)

Get back can also mean go back, but if you are talking about a person "I'll get back to you." it's usually about giving them information.


"I'll come back to you." if someone has to leave for a long time, maybe they will say this, it means returning to that person, and it may also can mean that they will not see/date other people while they're gone.
Q: What is the difference between come across as and come off as ?
A: No, they really don't have different connotations. I could say
"He comes off as a jerk, but really he's just awkward."

As easily as I could say

"He comes across as a jerk, but..."

It's important to note, though, that both "comes off as" and "comes across as" describe how something seems, not how it necessarily how they are. That's why you have the "comes off as _____ BUT _____" sentence pattern.
Q: What is the difference between come at you and come to you ?
A: Both "come at you" and "come to you" are short phrases that hold a certain meaning in English.

"Come at you" - you provoked someone in a bad way, so they might tell you, "I'm gonna come at you." (That person intends to fight/hurt you)

"Come to you" - literally means someone will meet you.

Ex. We'll all meet up for that party tonight, right? Yeah, lets meet up at your house first.

However, I am not too sure if there is another definition for "come at you." Sorry, that is the only one I could think of.
Q: What is the difference between come up with ... from and be inspired ?
A: Being inspired makes you come up with ideas without doing efforts,the inspiration has a source and makes you act or say something specificaly and that is thanks to your source of inspiration

While coming up with something is the result of thinking, the idea doesn't come by itself
