May I say so?

Hello!! I have a question!!!
May I say: Rest your book on the table (the meaning ’ put your book on the table’
Many thanks


I think the verb ‘to rest’ is intransitive so you don’t use it with an object. You can use it in such idiomatic phrases as ‘rest assured’.[YSaerTTEW443543]

Torsten, but I saw in book was wtitten: Rest your head on your pillow
Why I cannot say : rest your books on the table. Exdplain please


Hi Pupil,

The verb ‘rest’ in your sentence is to ‘relax’ and whereas you can relax your head,elbows, legs and so on, you can’t do that with a book!


Thank you Alan. Now it is very clearly for me.
