Lay and lie are two action words. You might think they have the same meaning if you do not properly study the two words and know how they are used. The differences between lay and lie at times depend on how they are used in a sentence. Lay simply means to place something down in a position of rest. For example: you can lay the books on the table, in other words, it means you can put the books on the table. You can also use lay when you are referring to the process by which eggs are being produced by animals.


On the other hand, lie simply means to rest in a horizontal position on a surface. It also means to remain at a position for a specific time. while lay literally means to place something down in a position of rest, lie simply talks about an object that is already resting. Lie also means to give false information deliberately.

The phrase 'get it' on its own would typically only be used as either an imperative or a question. For example, 'I get it' means, 'I understand.' Get it means that the speaker realizes something. Putting the word, got in place of get could mean that the speaker has something, is receiving something, or has a situation under control.

Get it or got it alone could mean either a realization or enlightenment. To get could also expect to receive. Got and get are both interchangeable with have or have to. Got to could also mean must. For example, 'I got to go now' could even say, 'I have to go now.'

In the English language, most people speak and write in the present or past tense. This means that the verbs that they use in their sentences are in the past or present tense. However, usually, someone keeps the same verb tense throughout their conversation, which means that they don’t change verb tenses in the middle of a conversation.

One verb is laid. It is in the present tense. You may say something like, “you lay your baby in his crib.” This means that right now, you put the baby in the crib. Laid is the verb that has the same meaning, but it is in the past tense. This means that the baby was put down in the crib in the past.

The perfect tense of a verb describes the perfected action in a sentence. It can be the present perfect, the past perfect, or simply the future perfect, depending on the sentence and the person relating the sentence. Verbs that are changed to the perfect tense often employ have or had in the sentence. In the present perfect sentence for instance, there are two verbs, simply because it is a compound tense.

As for the sentence mentioned, changing it to the perfect tense would mean adding a has or have and changing the verb to the future or the past depending on your preference. The best answer available is that the company has given raises to its employees.

Suffix and prefix are words that are added to the root word to change its meaning or to modify the entire word. The use of suffix and prefix is something that is very common in English language. When suffix and prefix are added to any root word, they can change the tense and part of speech of the root word. However, there are differences between suffix and prefix. Suffixes are one or more letters that are added to the end a root word to modify its meaning.


For example: if 'ed' is added to the word 'work' to give 'worked', this shows that, the tense of the root word has been changed from present to past tense. Prefix, on the other hand, is a word that is added to the beginning of the root word to modify its meaning. For example: if you add 'un' to the word 'opposed', it becomes unopposed, a new word entirely. Prefix can be one or more letters and even syllables.

Don't you think this answer is wrong? Shouldn't the answer be present continuous? Although Dong-Bang Stinky is planning for a future event,the planning is being done right now. She "IS PLANNING" - in the present tense. If this were simple future it would read "Dong-Bang Stinky will plan to come to my house next week".
