"I wonder if you could explain the difference between the words, 'mislay' and 'misplace'?"

Shan, from Hong Kong

Did Helen lose her glasses or did she misplace them?

This week's question asks what the difference is between the words misplace and mislay.

Chris and Helen discuss the use of these words and how you can also replace them with the word 'lost'.

Can they be used to refer to both objects and people?

They also explain the meaning of the phrases 'misplaced affection' and 'misplaced trust'.
