(redirected from loaned out)

loan (something) out (to one)

Some linguists, especially in British English, believe that "loan" should only be used as a noun, while the correct verb is only "lend." I can't come pick you up tonight—I loaned the car out to your brother. I stopped loaning my books out to friends because I never get them back.
