A tour for people who love language, words and fun.
I love this chart! I'm going to show it to my students after spring break.
I'm glad you like it. I have an idea...have your students come up with some more language related graphs and charts and send them to me. I will post them on this blog and give them the credit.
Fantastic idea. We are on spring break right now, but we'll be back in class on Thursday evening. I'll make the proposal then!
Outstanding...we could have a lot of fun with this.
I always confuse them. I'm *pretty* sure, without looking at a grammar, that "lie" is intransitive (when used to refer to horizontal position) and "lay" is transitive. But the past tenses and the participles always get me regardless.In Dutch it's just as confusing (liggen > lag > gelegen and leggen > legde > gelegd) -- irregular and regular, respectively.
Scribbles,You are right about the past tenses and participles being tricky. I just posted a chart to help with those. Here is the link - http://walkinthewords.blogspot.com/2009/03/more-help-with-difference-between-lay.htmlP.S. Thank you Martha Brockenbrough for an excellent chart.
