Usage: {Put}, {Lay}, {Place}, {Set}. These words agree in the
idea of fixing the position of some object, and are
often used interchangeably. To put is the least
definite, denoting merely to move to a place. To place
has more particular reference to the precise location,
as to put with care in a certain or proper place. To
set or to lay may be used when there is special
reference to the position of the object.
