Deme medio kilo de tomates.

English Translation

Give me half a kilo of tomatoes.

Should “déme” have an accent?

No, the accent on is used to distinguish the imperative from the preposition, but here there is no risk for confusion.

This word ends with a vowel, so the stress naturally falls on the second to last syllable. So an accent mark is unnecessary. The diacritical mark (e.g., se/sé, mi/mí, como/cómo, etc.) isn’t necessary for this word, since there isn’t a homograph for “deme”.
