/Get out/ is synonymous with /depart/ and /leave./ Synonymous doesn't 
mean no difference. There are times when you could easily translate /get 
out/ with *mej* or *tlheD.* /I'm fed up with you! Get out of this room!/ 
*SoHmo' jIpuQ**. pa'vam yImej!

But as I said, there are times when using *-Ha'* is appropriate, and so 
I engaged with this question.

I'm not telling you to use a synonym. I was mentioning synonyms to 
discard them so we could talk about *-Ha'.*
