  • Usage notes

    Sense 1. To prepare a bed is usually to "make" the bed , or (qualifier) to "spread" the bed, the verb spread probably having been developed from bedspread. Like many nouns denoting places where people spend time, (term) requires no article after certain prepositions: hence , and so on. The forms (term), etc. do exist, but tend to imply mere presence in the bed, without it being for the purpose of sleep. See also
