How to Use Sit and Seat in Sentences

Oftentimes, people tend to commit errors with regard to the use of Sit and Seat. Many people, especially in a non-English speaking country, tend to use Seat as a noun. However, there are situations where using Seat as a verb is necessary to convey the message appropriately. This is exactly what this post aims to do.

So, let’s take a look at how we could use Sit and Seat as verbs under a number of circumstances.

Example #1: I’d like to sit next to you, please!

Example #2: I’d like you to sit next to my father, please!

SEAT (verb)

Example #1: Don’t worry; I’ll seat you next to your father.

For example:  Don’t worry; I’ll make sure you sit next to your father.

Example #2: The stadium seats about 7,000 people.

Explanation: The stadium has the capacity to accommodate 7,000 spectators.
