LAY DOWN / LIE DOWN


Sunbed

The task today is not to guess what’s in the photo. Even if it’s not totally clear, i can tell you immediately that what you’re looking at is a sunbed or sun lounger, something you might put in the garden on a sunny day; you can read on it or work on your suntan. It’s not very practical for the beach because it can’t be folded up and put into the car with the picnic cooler.

Take a closer look at the lounger. There’s a small notice on it. Read what it says and correct it!

    Correct sentence is “Please don’t lie down”.
    Lay is a transitive verb. I always hesitate to use them.

    1. Exactly. It’s a bit confusing because in this situation, the past of “lie” is “lay”. On the other hand, the past of “lay” is “laid”.

  2. Ok! In this case I can “lie down” 🙂
