Laid or Lain? (Plurals of Lay or Lie)
I just learned that "lain" is the past tense of lie -- I think. I'm wondering if this is what I should use in this sentence for the past tense (present tense but clause is in the past, because it has happened for years):
Now I have to revive over a half-dozen blogs that lain dormant for years.
Otherwise, maybe there's an entirely different way to say this that would be better? I'm just not sure. As far as I know, something that is dormat is in a deep sleep, which in my mind is "horizontal." Right? Or not? LOL
