Within an episodic instructive comedy named "Extra", when one of the characters saw a hazardous insect is moving on the other character's shirt, she got panicked and said:
Hold still, Hector.
I know it means "don't move". But according to the Longman Dictionary's definition, it seems that "still" is mostly used for people.
I wonder if you can tell me a little about the nuance between these two similar imperative sentences.
I guess there should be an AE/BE difference or maybe as Longman confirms, the former is mostly used for people and the latter one is used for everything.
