    Action and Stative Verbs

    Action Verbs            They show an action rather than a state.

                                  They describe things we do or things that happen.

                                  Action verbs can be used in continuous tenses.

                                  They are sometimes known as ' Dynamic or Active Verbs '.

                                   ( eat, learn, read, reach, jump, run, go etc )

    Stative Verbs            They describe a state rather than an action.

                                   They show thought or opinions, emotions, senses, possession.

                                   Stative Verbs can't be used in continuous tenses.

                                   They are sometimes known as ' State Verbs '.

                                   ( believe, understand, have, hate, love, hear, depend, dislike, concern, consist etc )
