Help?


(sentence)

Now she tugged off the material over her breasts, and threw it away, exposing her ample chest in all its glory; all, that is, except for the nipples, each covered by a small pad from which hung a small gold tassle.

(Should that be hung or hanged?).

Hung.

Just my lowly opinion, though. Let's wait for the grammar kings. emoticon

Pretty sure it's "hung" as well. Or "dangled".

"Hanged" is used when it's a person being executed (in Britain; maybe not in America). For everything else, it's "hung".
