    Mastering the Written Word

    Discussion started by CIPHER_one - Jan 24, 2004

    Can the word "lay" be used in the past tense?


    Example: So, Joel lay on the sidewalk in a small puddle of his own blood, paralyzed, for six hours until the neighborhood woke to go to work.


    Or does it have to be laid?

    "Joel laid paralyzed in the small puddle of his own blood that had formed on the sidewalk until the neighborhood awoke."

    I think that's what you're lookin' for.

    If the number is spoken by a character I think it should be written.
    Same thing applies when someone says 'ten o'clock'.
