    Default What's the subject of "Let us go"?

    If there is anyone else who is interested in this super difficult question, I just wanted to share an exciting discovery.

    I have found a scholarly explanation that -- although mostly over my head -- did help me a bit in getting closer to the

    answer.

    Just google:


    The subject of "Let us go." Modality in English.


    *****

    Happy reading!
