    Question leaned? leaning

    1. She just stood there with her back leaned against the wall.

    2. She just stood there with her back leaning against the wall.

    Which is correct? If both are correct, what is the difference of the two?

    Re: leaned? leaning

    Welcome to the forum, starokif.

    Neither sounds natural - and the first is not possible.

    She stood, leaning back on the wall is one possibility.
