hung vs hanged- when a person is put to death by hanging has this person been hanged or hung?
In my dictionary they are synonymous. RE: hanged or hung, To execute or cause to be executed by suspending by the neck.
I imagine it would depend on where you come from.
Different parts of the country say things differently.
I would also imagine that anyone having been hanged or hung would not give a hang one way or the other.LOL
These words are confusing because the past tense is different.
I hang the washing on the same line every week. (present tense)
Yesterday I hung the washing on the line. (past tense)
I have just hung the washing on the line. (present perfect)
The washing was hung on the line. (passive)
They hang people in Texas. (present tense)
They hanged 100 people last year. (past tense)
They have hanged people for many years. (present perfect)
He was hanged for murder. (passive voice)
So a person was hanged, but washing and everything else (jury, curtains etc.) is hung.
