Mensagem:  Don't feel bad about not understanding these verbs. Many native speakers use them improperly. The trick is that one is transitive and one is intransitive. Here is a link to a site that will explain it and give you some excellent examples: http://www.wordpower.ws/grammar/gramch11.html If I said I'm going to go lay down I guess I'd mean that I'm going to lay down my body and take a nap. Actually, I'm going to lie down. Doing the research for this just plumb wore me out!! Tom
