comment Was James Joyce confused about “prone” and “supine” or am I?
I checked and the word "supine" appears only once in Ulysses: "What proofs did Bloom adduce to prove that his tendency was towards applied, rather than towards pure, science? Certain possible inventions of which he had cogitated when reclining in a state of supine repletion to aid digestion" so, not sure whether that helps. The other uses of "prone" are in the sense of "having a tendency", not physical position.
