It is said by a boy who was running away from a danger situation.

Is it an alternated version of the word 「助ける」? Which dialect is it?

I would say that it is only a lisping pronunciation of 「たすけて」 = "Help!"

I would not call it dialectal unless this character says other words or phrases that are clearly dialectal.


in this case, 助けて【たすけて:tasukete】is right. (means "help me.")

I agree with l'électeur, but it might just be a spelling mistake. I and U are next to each other on the keyboard.

  • おそらく、かわいい印象を与えるために、作者がわざと「たしけて」を書いたと思います。ただし、個人的な経験をもとに、単なるスペルミスの可能性があることを指摘したかっただけ。
