"They do not let me."
Translation:Ellas no me dejan.
Shouldn't it be "Ellos no me permiten?" I learned that permitir is to allow or let someone do something and dejar is to leave something behind.
I think "déjame en paz" is "leave me in peace" so yes, I think dejar is used interchangeable with permitir.
From WordReference (http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=dejar): dejar can mean "to let/allow." WordReference is an awesome resource for Spanish by the way (along with many other languages)
Can someone help with the rules for order of words. I missed ella le deja, and Ellas no me dejan, both due to sequencing errors. I guess the clitic combo always goes together with "no" modifier preceding, and the clitic pronoun always before the verb..yes?
Sfdoc: I have been studying Spanish for a long time and have lived and studied in Spanish speaking countries off and on quite a bit and I had never heard the term "clitic" before Duolingo. Can someone tell me what that means? Thanks.
I referenced it on Wikipedia...no real easy explanation. One of those language terms...loosely means dependent upon another word in the phrase?... Sorry, not much help.
Yeah, "no" before the verb it negates except if there is a clitic before the verb, then the "no" comes before the clitic. (No + clitic(s) + conjugated_verb)
I think you can only add the pronoun to the end of the verb if it is in its infinitive form.
kordaine- you use the wrong tense, deja is for third person sing. and dejan is 3 rd person plural, for ellos. Also me goes before dejan.
That is past tense, it's correct but for the past tense form. What you've written is "They didn't let me"
This is the first "SELECT ALL" whith more than one corect alternative I've done.
It says "ellas no me dejan" twice, and if i pick either one it says "not "ellas no me dejan" the correct answer is"ellas no me dejan" " I can't do the lesson!
I said "Ellos no me Dejan" and it said it was wrong but then said the right answer was "Ellos no me Dejan"
