    see somebody off

    Hello, everyone.

    I have a question as to the usage of 'see somebody off'.

    "Anne saw Terry off at the station."
    see off - definition. American English definition of see off by Macmillan Dictionary

    Is it OK to say "Anne saw off Terry at the sation."?

    Thank you.

    Re: see somebody off

    No. The meaning there would be #2, which is unlikely unless Terry was harassing her at the station.
