This article should also include a definition of the way "let" is used for what is sometimes called the 1st person plural imperative: "let's go". I'm not sure if it would be classed as an auxiliary verb in this sense. — Hippietrail 08:02, 30 Aug 2004 (UTC)

let there be peace (leave unchanged)Edit

This sense should be described too. It is often described with other parts of speech in other languages. --Anatoli 23:18, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Examples: пусть (ru), niech (pl) (particles). --Anatoli 23:19, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Is the sense in "let me alone", non-standard? In this in the language arts section, question 27 poses it as wrong.--Simplificationalizer (talk) 19:12, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

I don't know if it's wrong per se, but the better option is the one using "leave". It comes down to which is the better choice rather than the right choice. Leasnam (talk) 19:22, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
