Are both correct? What's the difference in connotation?

There is no difference in denotative or connotative meaning between:

"Deja de copiarme, little brother/sister"


"Para de copiarme, little brother/sister".

Both are correct and natural.

The only slight difference might be one of register. The verb "parar" in verb phrases like "parar de + infinitive" is a bit more informal than the neutral "dejar de + infinitive".

  • @今夜九 You are right. I read "S" instead of "5".
