#Writing Tips #Grammar Tips

Lay-a transitive verb with the exception of its use in slang (let her lay), do not use it in place of the intransitive verb lie. The chicken lays an egg, the man lies down. The girl went home to lay down.

Less-should not be used to mean "fewer." There were less people. There were fewer people. Less refers to quantity and fewer refers to number.
