(d)runterlegen

Meanings

1.
to lay down
(In the literal sense of taking an object that was "up" and laying it down.)
2.
to lay under
("(d)runterlegen (unter+Acc)" - The focus here is that the object then STAYS under the thing. Think of putting a floor cloth under a dripping sink. That's why "dr-" is more idiomatic than "r-". "her-" is NOT an option, despite what textbooks might imply.)
Opposite (closest): rüberlegen
