    Default Do you say, sleep in or sleep on my bed? thanks teachers

    Dear teachers,

    Which preposition would be better for the following sentence? Thanks sooooo much.

    I will let my puppy sleep (in or on) my bed.

    BTW, one more question...

    When do we use the word "vocabularies"? Knowing that the word "vocabulary" already means a list of or all the words a person knows or uses. Thanks again.

    I will let my puppy sleep on my bed. <on the covers>
    I will let my puppy sleep in the bed. <inside the covers>

    vocabulary <one list>
    vocabularies <two or more different lists>

    EX: I have a list of vocab(ulary) to study.
    EX: I have to compare the vocab(ularie)s of French and English.
