Dynamic Verbs and Stative Verbs


Verbs are classified into two categories. 

1. Dynamic verbs 

2. Stative verbs
Dynamic verbs are also called action verbs. They can be used in the progressive (continuous) form.
Example: "Peter is playing now."

Stative verbs refer to a state or condition which is not changing or likely to change.
Stative verbs cannot normally be used in the progressive (continuous) form (ing form).
Example: "John wants a cup of coffee."
