    phrasal verb

    Can I use the phrase "lie on/upon" in the meaning of rely on

    E.g. in the following sentence "I have only gueses to lie upon"

    Thank you

    lie on and rely on are different:

    EX: I have only guesses to rely on. (OK)
    EX: I have only guesses to lie on. (Not OK; recline on the guesses)
