  • "Laying refers to an object, while lying refers to the person"

  • I would swing on the hammock...rather than lay on it.

  • A person LIES in a hammock. I thing would LAY (or more likely...was laid in the hammock).
    Although most people don't use the terms correctly (including me...I'd probably say laying even though I know it's incorrect).

  • One way to remember it is you lay an object down, you lie down.
