I'm pretty sure the lion is not laying any eggs here.



It's a tricky word, but I'm actually pretty sure I used it correctly.

I’m pretty sure, too. Lay is transitive: it needs an object (as in ‘lay an egg’ or ‘lay a book on the table’) but lie is intransitive and can’t have an object (e.g. you can lie down, but you can’t lie a book down).

Very nice work there. I think I saw this on Instagram and gave it a like. 

I do believe (we were taught it was correct anyway) that lying can mean to lie down although I know that a lot of spelling and grammar that we learnt a while back has changed nowadays so may now be considered archaic I guess. 

Best wishes,
