Question about Spanish

Time of past OR future Camino
2006 to date: Over 21 Caminos. See signature line
Can someone explain to me the difference between using "dele" and "deme" in Spanish? (I cannot put in the accent marks)

Dele un boligrafo

Deme un paraguas

What is the difference?

Annie, "déle" means "give (it)to him/her" and "déme" means "give (it) to me" in polite speech, someone you would call "usted".
The difference talking to a friend you call "tú" would be "dale un bolígrafo" and ""dame un paraguas".
Ok? :D
