Actually there was a conflict of those tow words and tjhe experts resolved it in the past week saying, lying on the bed,bench ground or whatever was the proper word in this occasion. Lying can imply that he is supine on the bench telling untruths.
Is that for real ???
that is funny , because many words have more than one meaning.
example; I sent you a letter.
so did i send a written letter or just a letter from the alphabet
thanks for the reply.
