In what situation should you use the words lay or lie, and for what reasons?
The word lay must be used when referring to an object. Since the word "Lay" is transitive, meaning the word must be performed by someone/something to be used, it needs an object. For example, i'm going to "lay" this blanket on the couch. The word lie, which is intransitive and does not require an object, should be used when there is no object to be spoken of. For example, i'm going to "lie" down in bed.
