Lie vs. Lay
I remember learning this distinction on the very first day of my graduate level editing class. It was exactly like this....
How I remember it: use ‘lie’ where you would use ‘sit’, and ‘lay’ where you would use ‘set’. I lie on the bed. I sit on...
This never bothered me until I learned the difference myself. Now I hear it misused everywhere D’x
BUT WHAT ABOUT LAY LADY LAY
