LIE (on the beach)   (浜に)横たわる


  • To lie is to be in a horizontal position (for example, on your back, stomach, or side) on a bed, a beach, etc.

    Be Careful! The past tense of lie is lay, NOT “lied”.
  • lie とは、ベッドや浜などで、体を地面に平行にする、(例えば、仰向けになる、腹ばいになる、あるいは、横向きに寝そべる)つまり、横たわる、という意味です。

    注意:lie の過去形は、lay です。lied ではありません。
