    Let go of me

    In what context does one uses the expression "Let go of me"

    I know "don't let go of me" means "Don't stop your support" or "Don't loose your grip or I will fall"

    But, can it also be used as "Let go of me!!" for "Leave me alone !!" or "Hands off!!" ?

    Yes, that's right, M49er.

    If someone grabbed your arm in the street, and tried to sell you something, you could say "Let go of me!".

    It's fairly forceful.

    All the best,

    MrP

    To pursue MrP's example:

    Imagine this person was persitently grabbing your arm. The first time it happened you might say 'Let go'; the second time 'Let me go'; and the third time 'I said, let go of me!'
