    Re: please help me!!!

    fragile state could mean "afraid"

    The verb LAY: meanings and examples

    1- lay something up = store something for future use
    We laid some potatoes for use in the winter months.

    2- lay someone up = to cause someone to be ill in bed
    A broken leg laid me for two months

    3- lay aside (a) = reject something
    I have to lay aside your opinion

    lay aside (b) to put something apart or to the side
    Lay that glass aside because it's broken.



    I hope I answered part of your questions

    iv) lay away The linen sheets were layed away for use on special occasions. [put into store]
    v) lay by Could you lay that wool by so I can collect it next week? [keep it to one side for me]
