Tuesday Tip: Hanged or Hung?

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be posting about some common words that can be confusing.

Hanged is when someone is put to death by hanging from a rope. 

The prisoner was hanged.

Hung is the correct past tense for of "hang" in all other uses. 

The child hung from the fence before he climbed over it.
