OK...I just realized why I am confused on this. Earlier we had a sentence where "Ik zet de auto onder de boom." That gave me the impression that autos would "sit" (zitten) rather than "stand" (staan). Obviously not. So whenever we use "zetten" to put an object somewhere, that object could be standing up? We would use "leggen" to place something that lies down, right? And we would use "stoppen" for something we place inside something else. Am I on the right track with these observations?
