Hung vs Hanged

Posted by

I thought of something interesting as I was working through my WIP.

What is the difference between hung and hanged?

A curtain is hung but a man is hanged.  Why can’t a man be hung?  I think it is strange that we use the word hung more than hanged.  Our infinity for “the hanging man” is weird and wrong, but it is there.  A part of the history of man that can’t be reversed.

I don’t know.  Maybe I am not making sense, but I just thought it was weird.  Even the Hunger Games had the hanging tree….it wasn’t the hung tree……..

What a weird thing the English language is…….

Happy writing my friends!
