Now I’ve had my doubts taken,because I just wanted to know the reason why some sentences come like this:Mary lay(meaning lie in the past tense,instead of laid).But I do want to know this:there’s a Bruno Mars’s well-known song(The Lazy Song),which the first lines say:”Today I don’t feel like doing anything.I just wanna lay in my bed.”Is the composer right,since I know that the right thing to do in this kind of sentence is,for instance:”Lie in my bed”?I hope you understand what is written in this comment.

dsilva179

    I guess the word “lay” emphasizes the fact that the singer really wants to stay (lie) in bed, doing anything.

    Take care!

    Paulo

    Dear friend,
    Might I make my guess about the first lines of Bruno Mars’s Lazy Song lyrics:
    ”Today I don’t feel like doing anything.
    I just wanna lay in my bed.”
    Maybe, here there’s the phrasal verb ‘to lay in/into’. Besides, they are lyrics. So, a poet can use words in a figurative [an extended] sense. It’s possible to say ‘to lay into a cake’. As I understand the latter means figuratively ‘to start eating’. Maybe, Bruno Mars’hero wants to jump into his bed (=start lying on his bed) in order to relax and watch MTV, etc… doing what’s possible on a bed? I don’t know. This is my guess. What do you think about it?
    Best wishes,
    Rouslan

    Great example! The grammatically correct lyric would be “I just want to lie in my bed.” In this case, Bruno Mars has incorrectly used “lay”.

    Confusing lay and lie is one of the most common grammatical mistakes English speakers make. I’m glad you shared this example with us.

    Emma

      Emma, I agree with you this is a very confusing scenario, but I don’t know how I got a so below score since you explained this difference very well. I will have to practice more. Good Job and keep up the excellent work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Rafael

      HITHERE! i come from Viet Nam, i have little English. ^^ i feel very interested in your lesson. i have a question which is ” what is different between wait and await? “. thanks.

          tientruongthanh94

      Hi, Emma thanks for wonderful lesson, after watching video i have got one confusion that you were telling about lie which always uses without an object i got this but something i can’t understand what is object , but you gave wonderful explanation i was able to do exercise through meanings but i can find out where is object and where is not so could please suggest me what i do ?

      jean85

      I think Bruno Mars did that mistake because it is a lazy song, and he didn’t want thinking too much.

      josedelgado

        you are right:))

        Faridka

      lay is a transitive verb( needs a direct object) and so are the two forms laid and laid.;
      lie is an intransitive verb does not need and object.

      jeffri

      Hussam Mazen

    Thank you so much Emma it’s crystal clear now ;I wonder how long had I been confused for many years.lie ,lay, Laid ,lain and get laid 😬🤔

    Johan Masih

I killed the quiz!
I got the difference between lie and lay. Thank you, Emma.

I also want to thank all the people who work on EngVid. You are doing great job. I’m sure you help to many people to improve their English. I would like you to add a feature, please. There are quizzes after videos, and they help to understand video materials better. After watching several videos, I want to check all my knowledge one one topic together. For example, there were lessons about “Rise, raise”, “Assure, ensure, insure” and so. How about a test with all these words together? Or after learning punctuation, I’d like to check all punctuation. I’m currently learning slang, and I want to get a test with all slang I’ve seen in EngVid. However, thanks for your lessons!

Yan

    I want to check all my knowledge of one topic.

    Sorry, there was a mistake.

    yankhonskiy

Dear Emma, thank you very much for your new lesson.
Watching this video, I’ve remembered the song “Lay back in the arms of someone” of Smokie .
What does “Lay back” exactly mean in this phrase ?
Is there any hidden sense in this phrase ?
Thank you for your attention.

Eric

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for your question. “Lay back” is slang, and it means to relax. “Lay back in the arms of someone” is grammatically incorrect; “lie” would be the correct verb to use.

    It is a good song though, and I still like it!

    Emma

Probably the most commonly confused words in English, and all because of, as you explained Emma, the word “LAY”. That word has both past and present form. Also, we often confuse them because of the word “LIE”-not telling the truth. When all these words flow fluently by native English speaker, man you must be an expert to understand it. Very nice lesson, and even better explanation. Regards!

Marko

    Thanks Marko!

Hi Emma, great lesson. Finally I understand the difference between lie and lay. Thank a lot and you look so pretty, rs. Kisses from Brazil

sarahniki

    Because when you’re using it in the “not speaking truth” sense, people don’t really mix it up with “lay”!

In the video, You said ,” get laid” means sex.
So, How do I use this phrase?

Can I say ” Last night I got laid ” rather than ” Last night I made love “? THANKS.

Hello Emma!
This was a great lesson, I hadnt’t even realised of this two confuse verbs, but now I get the point when I should use one and the other! I must confess when I see the verb “Lay” I wondered myself if it was something about “get laid” has you explained! Now we must be carefull and watch out if the verb Get is not behind the Laid. Hehehe.

Kisses and keep with

sir/ma’am which one of my comment is incorrect grammar?

Sanny

    I approved the one that was closest to being right, but I think you meant “I think I need to study harder”. Harder = more hard.

So if I say ”I got laid yesterday”, does it mean I was put dowm… somewhere?

keita2

wow! For me the last one is “THE DINNER WAS LYING ON THE TABLE” because LIE also means an object is on a horizontal position / or a surface

jonath689

thanks Emma …In you last sentence : The dinner was laid on the table. here is also no object available after laid then why you use laid here

alwayshappy

hi emma how are you, i’ve question for you please.
for example this question
I have never ________lain______ in a waterbed (use the present perfect).
is correct but i can’t understand one thing so
my question is.
when i should to use present perfect of the verb lie or lay ?

tareck

    Hi
    Present perfect is used on that time, when something is completed recently.
    e.g you are taking a dinner and when you finish it. you can say that I have taken a dinner. Taken is the past participle of Take

    hassanj

Hi Emma! I have a doubt, I ve been studying my English lesson and there is a woman who say: “Remember the time you were laid up in bed for a week because of the back spasms.” In this case what means laid?
Tks for the great class!!!

Wagner

Hi Emma, I have been studying my english lesson and there is a conversation which there is a woman say: “Remember the time you were laid up in the bed for a week because of the back spasms.”What means laid in this case ?

chanchal17

hi! Emma thanks for discussing these two little words yet so complicated when we use them in our communication whether written written or oral communication. By the just want to add something…I guess the difference between these two words is LAY is a transitive verb and the word LIE can function as intransitive and a noun. Transitive verb needs an object to complete the sentence while intransitive does not…hope my simply explanation provides clarification too. By the way…could you please tell us about the difference bet. prepositions in and on?because as what I’ve learned in is being used to identify broader or wider ideas,like if you are referring to city, country, month, year or season. This could also identify object found in the middle of…while the preposition on is being used to identify one day or date and also is used to identify object on top of something…I was just confused on the given examples like. I lay IN my bed and I need to lie IN a bed; also I’ve lain IN a hammock before.Please clarify or correct my statements if you find it erroneous. Thank you again!

Hello, Emma.
I think it´s other example of lyric whith grammar mistakes, but this time from Iron Maiden, British. This is the song called Another Life. I confess thoug I have not understood it yet. Lay + Lying. Would you help with it? Thank you since then.
“As I lay here lying on my bed”

hi, Emma! your lesson was great. can you tell me about 2nd conditionals. `couse we have a huge problem with it in school. in our pupil`s book the 2nd conditionals = if + Past Simple + could/would + verb in ifinitive. but i have seen that in 2nd conditionals must be should/would istead of could/would. is it right to use the word “to be” as “were” with all persons(singular and plural)???

Adam

Hi Emma!
In your lesson you explained the word “lay” means to put something down. Can I conclude we can not use “lay” to put something up.
Exmaple: Lay the books in the upper rack. (Is it correct?). By the way you explained the lesson beautifully, thanks a lot.

Ihsan

Thank you great teacher

Hello Emma! Thank you for the explanations! If we have such teachers at schools we’d know English better for sure. Though we are limited in time at school… Anyway, thank you!
Best regards!

olya77

Thanks for the lesson

River

Hello Emma
Allow me to say that : You are an outstanding teacher . About Lay & lie , I think that when we mix them up , it could facilitate the understanding : e.g

Yesterday When I had lain in my bed , I laid my hand on my eyes to get asleep

Mino

great lesson :)

kyyliee

Emma, I love you lessons but was the last example a mistake. You used “LAID” in the sentences.

Chichi

Emma, please disregard my previous comment. I replayed the lesson and have a clear understanding of the use of word “laid”. Thanks.

Chichi

i got 100 out 100 ….. omg i can not believe it…

shouks

Hi Emma,

Is that right way to say “get laid off” from work ?

syedaamir

as you describe in video “get laid” means sex ??

syedaamir

hey Emma,I wanna get laid with you.You’re very attractive :D

joe

      Why you cannot just clean comments from those kind of things?

      I guess that “sex” styled comments should be erased completly here.

      dboyko

        I usually just delete them, but sometimes I can’t resist telling people off!

        engVid Moderator

    Stop this stupid things and erspect you self let us learn and take benefet from the lesson.

    abdul2013

Nice lesson, i hope you keep giving them. So Emma, i’d like to know if there is a easy way to get better understand about prepositions, if you could give a lesson about it. It seems a lesson for beginners but i’ve seen a bunch of advanced students making mistakes. Emma, why you and you guys on engvid don’t give skype classes ?.

Robson

thank you so mach Emma

youneselectro

you said the past tense of lie is lay but the quiz says lied can you explain ???

medirock

I saw that lay has got another meaning when it is used as an adjective.
It is difficult for a lay person in english (not an expert one like me) to get the difference between lay and lie. I think I have to lie down for a while.
Nevertheless I got 8 out of 10. Not so bad ! Thanks Emma Your video is very clear.

olivierdauphin

Dear Emma, I really don’t know how to thank you for this very important lesson. It was amazing. Keep doing the best.

locdy

Hi miss Emma, thank you so much for this new interesting lesson. Peace and God bless

locdy

first I would like to tell you that you are so beautiful, secondly that in the last example with lay, exercise number four, the answer was laid as you wrote it down but there was not an object following the verb lay (laid).Therefore not always appears an object after verb?. thanks

josedelgado

Hi miss Emma, thank for this lesson.

carliux

This theme is really tricky, even you made a mistake.
In fact, at the end of the lesson your example 4 is unresolved.
You wrote: The dinner was laid on the table,
but should have been: The dinner was lay on the table. There’s no object, so it has to be Past tense of lie.

teachermac

I NEED TAKE MY TEST AGAIN :(

Thank you for this explicit technique of explaining the grammar.

Thanks for your support & effort.

saber87

thanks Emma. your lessons are always good. you are very nice too. sometimes i confuse lie and lay. it is very difficult. but after your lesson, i can use correctly lie and lay in my sentences. thank you very much.

ganbashir15

Thanks for your wonderful lessons for second language speakers. As you said in the lesson, these words are very confusing to use in even our own language. lie and lie(not telling truth) and lie-lay(past form)lay and so on.Please change spelling of this past form, lay to another!lol Joke. Please keep giving us good lessons as you do now.Thanks again.

kosobe113

    Nice comment! :)

thanks Emma for this lesson.

sandy

Hi Emma!

Your lesson is fantastic!

I am sure that we need more advanced lessons like this one.

Also the Quiz of that lesson is very tough.

Could you prepare some lessons about to simplify speech or how complex ideas might be expressed in a simple way, please?

It is something like to show how scientist and non-scientist persons are talking around the same thing?

Thank you very much!

dboyko

Thx Emma!

marcoloneroma

Dear Emma,
Thank you so much for your exceptional lessons.
Could you, please, tell me what is the ing-forms of lay and lie?

robert1948

I got 100 !. Yeah.

didi17

Hi
I know my English to some extent, but Oh boy this lie & lay business is really confusing me. I have come to a conclusion, correct me if I am wrong Teacher Emma. lay or laid followed by an object is the present form and lie, lay, lain followed by preposition is the past tens.

roshank

I have gotten a smiley 10/10 face because you are a wonderful teacher, big thanks Emma , I will never be confused by these 2 words.

Thanks for these great english lessons! I have learned so much, you are the best teacher ever, Emma!

Gussiss

Hi Emma!
Thank you again for another tips. It is really important to memorized the “lay,laid,laid”; “lie,lay,lain”; and their rules S-V-O for lay and S-V for lie. These will be a great help on my future TOEFL. More power to you and engvid!
-luben

Luben

hi there, i happen to know why you used laid at the last one. i think it would be lain, becuse we have to use the verb lie in past participle. just an example:it is broken. i hope you understand me. bye.

pussy in boots

You are the best Emma. I watched this video while i was lying on sofa.

nqwe

Thank you.

be0711

Very common mistake apparently, the first verse of Metallica’s song “The Unforgiven II” on their album “Reload” : “Lay beside me and tell me what they’ve done”. Guess they should go back to school.

SANA IBRAHIM

Hello Emma,

It´s breaking my head. Is “laid back” grammatically correct or should it be “lain back”?

Thanks

rafael.tunich

the way you teach is just awesome!

Rasho

Emma,
rasho is right.
Could you expand your lesson on lie vs lay for ing forms and make some more examples?
Thanks in advance.
Rdgs,

MKJMKJ

Dear Professor Emma,
Let me know please if my reasoning in respect of last example is correct.
– The dinner was laid on the table by me(by sb).- passive – no object, but preposition “on”.
– I laid the dinner on the table. – active – object the dinner.

Is it a correct explanation?

The other approach is to think about meaning of the verbs lie vs lay.

regards

MKJMKJ

Another one examp., when eng native speakers say lay instead lie is The Unforgiven II song by Metallica. James Hetvild sings – “Lay beside me, tell me what they’ve done”

Andrey-ru

The lesson is very helpful, but I need to find more examples. I’m still a little confused.

Frida2380

thx emma

fetah

Its really confusing.”Lie” is more confusing word than lay.
Suppose i wanna say ‘Jackob always say lie’
here ‘lie’ means Not telling truth but after watching this lesson i’m in doubt.
Whatever its a wonderful presentation. :)

Thanks..Emma..But we need more questions avoid for our confusion.

Hey Emma what about v-ing? Nice class by the way.

charliegalvan

yeaaaa i got 10 uot of 10 which means 100%

meir

lay = place or put

lie = recline

I will go to great lengths to avoid saying “lain”. I would rather say something people can understand. I would say “I sat by the pool” or “I reclined by the pool”. “I relaxed by the pool many years ago.”

lucyjoy33

I did quiz without watching your video unfortunately
I got 30 however after I watched I got 100
thanks a lot EMMA for your clarify lesson

drhazim

Don’t get me wrong ma’am I respect your painstaking quality to teach us for FREE! but i thought i can just correct your pronunciation of “OFTEN” it is pronounced as “OFEN” and not as “OFTEN”. :D
– Thankyou for the great lesson :)

Pankaj Shah

I GOT 9 OUT OF 10: I’m veeeery happy, because, for ME, this topic “Lie vs Lay” has ever been one of the hardest English grammar issues to understand and use in real situations. Obviously, I still have my doubts, but I can see the difference clearlier ! … A question: *** Do Native speakers confuse LIE (to rest / recline) and LAY (to put sth on…) when LIE means “Not to tell the truth” ? … I mean when they have to conjugate the verbs in their different contexts?, … Thanks in advance! and Sincere Greetings from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, South America!

CaribbeanX

Thanks a lot Emma! I always have trouble using those two words. After watching your video, i got 100 % right. So happy!. Hope you will make more videos about common mistakes that English learners often make and fix them. Thanks again and have a nice day! :D

suong mai

If I understood well, LAY (present tense) answer to the question “WHAT”.
For example: I lay (WHAT) —> my head (O) on the pillow! It helped me a lot during the test :) Could be it a right suggestion?

Ethan86mtl

Thanks a lot Emma… It’s a very interesting lesson.

Rafael Casafranca

Teacher Emma you’ve explained both of them quite well!
Really make me much clear than ever.

emma!you are the best,thank you.

anika-anika

Hello Emma! Please, can you explane me why did you use “laid” instead of “lain” in last example? We have preposition there, not the object. Thanks.

NatalyLun

    I was thinking that Emma will write ‘lying’. In Poland we often say ‘Dinner (or other meal) is lying on the table’ to call someone when dinner is already made and it is placed on table.

Dear Emma,
I am watching all of your videos and practising for IELTS exam. You are a great teacher I must say.

I have a query in this lie or lay? lesson.
the last practice sentence in the video it says.” The dinner was laid on the table”. but there is no object following the verb than why you used a verb was laid?

waiting for your reply. :-)

Thanks alot Emma.The quiz was realy confusing,but i made it at the end.

Greetings Emma,
with your explanation, it became a piece of cake.

Many thanks Emma
Sincerely,

AhmadMahmud

HIi Emma
I think in Q3 u would use “on” instead of “in”.
coz as we learned in this video : “Lay ON” not “lay IN”
Am i right? if no plz take off my confusion

haman87

Thanks a lot. Very useful.

Nomiko

Thanks a lot Emma. I think I learnt th difference between lay and lie.

Melahet

Bob Dylan “Lay lady lay
Lay across my big brass bed” is wrong!
Melanie “Lay down lay down, let it all down
Let your white birds smile up at the
Ones who stand and frown” is wrong,too!There is no object. Still the “let it all down” is there so one may assume that there is an omitted object…Then “the ones who stand and frown” follows so is it lay or is it a wrong imperative (correct: lie down)

okyalos

Tricky!!! Passive voice
The dinner was laid on the table = the dinner was put (or positioned or served) on the table (misleading preposition).

okyalos

Thanks, Emma. I got 90

nickandr

Thank you, Emma. I’ve understood everything, now I know the difference between these words because sometimes I was confused when I was reading. Furthermore, I like the way you explain as my English school the teachers explain like you.

thank you so much!

This video let me confuse.
Although I had learnt them in my junior high school, I have foregotten them.
I will learn them step by step.
Thank you Emma-san.

hishoda

Oh my Gosh, so confusing!

Rayander

Thank you Emma for this hard lesson. I havesome difficulties the last example. It’s a bit confusing and needs more explanation because it is a passive clause.
Is it right if write : ”the dinner was lying on the table” by using the verb ”to lie” as we say ”my dog was lying on the floor’
But could we also write”the dinner was (or is) lain on the table”, as we say ”He’s lain in a hammock” ?
I understand why even native speakers make this type of mistakes. In that example it is hard to decide if ”lie” or ‘lay” have to be used according the situation. Am I right ? What do you think about it ? Thanks.

abdu140

Thnkx for the lesson. I am very grateful for this lesson. I had a doubt regarding the “object” in a sentence. The object is the thing or person who receives the action. So in that example i.e. “I lay in my bed”, isn’t bed the object that is receiving the action of the verb ‘lay’?

Aedit1997

Hello, Emma!
Thanks for this lesson, I didn’t even know that the verb “lie” can be used as smth else except of not telling the truth.
I will be satisfied if you answer me, why in the description of this video ( just above it ) is written “…At the end of the video,..” ? My English teacher always told me the correct form is “At the beginning” but “In the end”.

I need your explanation!

Hi, Emma .
i think 4- was lain because no object after it.

KEOSOVUTHEA

My dog lies in front of me.

What is “me” in that sentences? Isn`t “me” also an object?

The legendary procastinator

“I have just risen from my chair.”

You say there is no object in that sentence. Isn`t a chair by definition an object.

The legendary procastinator

Thank you Emmma, really helping me

Timme

Greats comments!!!!, I love this section

PedroCY

I really was confused of how to used the past tense of “lie”, I should use it as lied or lay…. but now I am no longer confused of that and “lied” is for untruth, but “lay” is for rest and reclining.
thanks a lot teacher Emma

EnglishLearnerAbdo

To be frank, I couldn’t answer even 4 out these 10 questions. But now after watching Emma’s lesson I was able to score ten out of ten. thank you Emma, your lesson is interesting and helpful.

But i think there is no point in crying over spilled milk. Let it be. I made a mistake. But no complain, no regrets.
I’m going to watch the video again and try to learn better.
Once i will get the point of the rules,I will be able to use it 100% gramatical.

I wish you all the best in learning English.
Bye ;)

Dear teacher Emma,
It was so great to watch your videos.
I’m sorely interested in all of your videos, and I think they are very helpful.
Hope I could improve my English skills with your videos.
Thanks so much

Dear Emma: I hope you begin according to the order of your lessons because for us it’s a little difficult to memorize if you begin with the second word you understand me? In this lesson the first word is lie and you began with lay.Please teacher :)

Thank you very much, Emma. Now I’ve got it right! I like the way speak and articulate words, it’s so perfect and pure that it blows me away.
