Stative Verbs

A verb is considered to be a stative verb if it is expressing a state or condition rather than an action. Usually, a stative verb is a verb used primarily to describe a state of being, or situation. It’s how something is, feels, or appears. These verbs don’t show physical action or processes.

A verb that isn’t stative is called a dynamic verb and is usually an action. Often stative verbs are about liking or disliking, something, or about a mental state, not about action.
