When a batter hits one, we say that he flied (not flew ) out to left field. ( See fly .) When the ball makes a beeline to an outfielder without touching the ground, we say that the batter line-drived (not line-drove ) it. ( See drive .)

...While Alison's theories offered one avenue of interpretation and justification for pictures like Flatford Mill , the *picturesque theory of writers such as William *Gilpin and Uvedale *Price gave objects like Constable's gnarled tree, clump of plants, twisting brook, and battered stump an independent aesthetic value as signs of an unspoilt, weathered, and ‘natural’ British landscape endearingly resistant to the claims of modernity.
