    Lie / Lay

    Choose the right verb.

    Easy! You can only lay something

    You LIE in bed (you are in the bed) but you LAY a book into your bed (you put a book into your bed).

    LIE : no movement, no action.

    LAY : movement, action.

    What is difficult:

    Lie - preterite: lay, past participle: lain

    Lay - preterite: laid, past participle: laid

    They are often misused because the preterite of "lie" and the verb "lay" have the same spelling.
