BBC英语一分钟: lie 和 lay的用法区别

Lie vs Lay

 lie 和 lay二者之间的区别

I'm Sian from BBC Learning English, and today we're going to look at the difference between lay and lie.

大家好,我是BBC英语学习频道的希恩,今天我们将要学习lay和lie的区别。

So lay always has an object, and it means 'put something or someone down carefully' – normally in a flat position. When I eat I lay a cloth on the table. You can lay a baby in a cot. The past tense is laid, but careful with the spelling. I laid all my cards on the table.

通常,lay后会接一个宾语,它的意思是“将某物或某个人小心地放下”,通常是放在一个较平的位置。吃饭时我在桌上摆了块布。你可以把宝宝放在婴儿床上。它的过失去是laid,但是要注意它的拼写。我把我的底牌都亮出来了(摊开放在桌子上)。

The verb lie doesn't have an object and it means that you are 'in a flat position' or you 'put yourself in a flat position' - so you move on your own. Tonight I want to lie on the sofa and watch a film. But be careful. Now, the past of lie is lay. Yesterday I lay on the beach and read my book.

动词“lie”后不接宾语,他的意思是你处于“平的位置”或者“你把自己放置于水平位置”,所以你可以自己移动。今晚我想躺在沙发上看电影。但是要注意,lie的过去是是lay。我昨天躺在沙滩上看书。
