help on options

    I am new to the game of options. Could someone just tell me some of the language that is used in the purchasing of puts.

    Do you buy a put or do you take a put? Are they the same thing?

    Can you sell a put that you do not own - such as short sell?

    When the put moves into the money can I sell or do I place a bid.
