FLEEFLY




Common Stumbling Blocks - Peculiar Constructions - Misused Forms.

These are two separate verbs and must not be interchanged. The principal
parts of flee are flee, fled, fled; those of fly are fly,
flew, flown. To flee is generally used in the meaning of getting
out of danger. To fly means to soar as a bird. To say of a man "He has
flown from the place" is wrong; it should be "He has fled from the
place." We can say with propriety that "A bird has flown from the
place."
