                  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.
