Stat
ive Verbs

Simple Present Vs. Present Progressive
Conclusion
Remember that stative verbs almost never occur in progressive form
There are some stative verbs that can also be normal verbs. (The meaning you want to convey is important in knowing whether the verb stative or normal)

Homework:

Write a short paragraph (5 to 7 sentences) using stative verbs in the simple present

Describe a state or situation but not actions
ex. The dog
weighs
very little. (describes the dogs physical state)
ex. The dog
jumps
over the fence. (describes an action that the dog is doing,
jump
is not stative.)

States continue and do not end
Almost never occur in a progressive form
Feelings/Emotions:
e.g. love, hate, like, hope
Senses:
e.g. hear, see, smell, taste
Thinking:
e.g. forget, understand, remember, know
Belongings:

Basic Rules
Categories
In present tense, stative verbs occur in simple present tense. (subject+bare verb+object= simple)
ex. I
own
three cars.
ex. She
remembers

me.
Stative verbs do not occur in present progressive (Subject+be+ verb+ing+object= progressive)
ex. I
am owning
three cars.
ex. She
is remembering
me.
Exceptions
There are some stative verbs that can also be normal verbs depending on the meaning intended in a sentence. These special stative verbs can sometimes be progressive.
ex. I
think
coffee is great (stative)
ex. Sarah is
thinking
about her vacation (normal)
In the first example "think" is stative when it means to have an opinion.
In the second example "think" is normal when it means to consider.

ex. Danny
has
a cat
ex. They are
having
fun
In the first example "have" is stative when it means to own.
In the second example "have" is normal when it is being used in an expression.
