The use of “let” to introduce an imperative may sometimes be confused with its use, as its own imperative, in the sense of “to allow”. For example, the sentence “Let me go to the store.” could either be a second-person imperative of “let” (addressing someone who might prevent the speaker from going to the store) or a first-person singular imperative of “go” (not implying any such preventer).
(to allow):allow, permit
The allowing of possession of a property etc. in exchange for rent.
From Middle Englishletten(“to hinder, delay”), from Old Englishlettan(“to hinder, delay”; literally, “to make late”), from Proto-Germanic*latjaną. Akin to Old Englishlatian(“to delay”), Dutchletten, Old Englishlæt(“late”). More at late, delay.
