 ________________________________
LIE vs. LAY


I would not be a liar if I told you that
People lay their puppies down.
Puppies lie on people.
People lie on beds.
It is bad to lie to a friend.
It is also bad to get laid off (that is, set aside by your employer.)
Lie means, “to repose.” It is intransitive and never takes an object, as in,
I lie down to sleep.
A different lie that is spelled and pronounced the same means, “to fabricate or mislead” someone
through speech as in,
He lied to me. or He told a lie.
Lay means, “to put.” It is transitive and always takes an object as in,
I lay my baby down to sleep.
Here is a chart showing how these three confusing words are conjugated:
Present Tense Past Tense Past Participle Present Participle
