    I know lay vs lie in the present perfect, as you’ve described it. My trouble is when I get into any other tense. I will go out of my way to rearrange a sentence to use any other verb to describe someone either reclining or setting.

    Unless someone is referring to getting laid. Sadly, I know how to use that correctly. 🙂

    Thanks, Tricia!

    I haven’t done “then” vs. “than” yet, but I’ll definitely keep it in mind for a future column!
