comment What is the word for a path that is made naturally by the action of people walking?
I first discovered the term desire line in the book Universal Principles of Design which describes the term as 'Traces or use or wear that indicate preferred methods of interaction with an object or environment (also know as Desire Path)'. More informally I may refer to a desire path as a beaten track or well-trodden path.

comment “Sit in a chair” vs. “sit on a chair”
I suppose it's like saying if someone is on a bed they're sitting down or lying on the bed but if they are in the bed they are under a blanket.
