主題: 常混肴的日常動詞 Sit / Set / Seat

To Sit

It describes an action undertaken by the subject of a clause. The verb “to sit” does not express the kind of action that can be DONE TO anything.

Example sentences:

  • I SIT here every day. (She SITS here.)
  • I SAT here yesterday.
  • I WILL SIT here tomorrow.
  • I AM SITTING here right now.
  • I HAVE SAT here every day for years.

To Set

It describes an action and requires a direct object because it describes the kind of action that is DONE TO something.

Example sentences:

  • I SET my book on the table every night before turning out the light. (She SETS her book on the table.)
  • I SET my book on the table last night.
  • I WILL SET my book on the table tonight.
  • I AM SETTING my book on the table right now.
  • I HAVE SET my book on the table every night for years.

To Seat

Keep in mind that when we talk about placing our guests in their chairs for, say, a dinner party, we are seating them, not setting them.

Example Sentences:

  • Today I SEAT my guests.
  • Yesterday I SEATED my guests.
  • I WILL SEAT my guests.
  • I AM SEATING my guests.
  • I HAVE SEATED my guests.
