"Let go of me" should also be acceptable.

'Get off me' not accepted

I translated it "let go me" thinking they dropped the word "of".

Anggun, Anggun! Tolong, lepaskan saya!

(Sorry, teman-teman, but I cannot avoid sharing this)

I really love Anggun songs. =))

Thank you for sharing the song! It's from the famous movie "Frozen", isn't it? It makes me much easier to memorize the word "lepaskan".

"Release me!" should also be an appropriate translation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/donny309620

I agree. In fact, i think "release" would be a more precise translation of "lepas" than "let... go"

it should be let go of me - not let go off me - the pull down menu has off as a choice - this is wrong

"Lepaskan" vs "Biarkan" vs "Mari" ??


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ms.Fixer

Maybe the root words would help you understand the difference.

Lepas = free, leberated, detached, released

Biar = let, permit

Mari = Come here, please

Mari kita = Let's

"Biarkan anak-anak itu bermain." / "Let those children play." https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28989050

"Biarkan" in this sentence is "to give children permission to play". You can't use "mari" in this context because it's not an invitation/offering. I'm still figuring out whether "lepaskan" and "biarkan" in this context are interchangeable or not.

Should be 'of' not 'off' me
