Hello, Guest. Emotion: smile
Simply put, dynamic verbs are those can occur with progressive aspect (in continuous tenses), while stative verbs cannot.

Dynamic verbs are, for example, go, run, watch.
"He was running down the street."

Stative verbs: forgive, desire, know, etc. Stative verbs are mainly verbs of "inert perception and cognition", and "relational verbs" (intend, concern, possess).

Dynamic verbs can be "activity verbs", "process verbs", verbs of "bodily sensation".

Stative verbs descibe a state or situation:

I love chocolate
(not I am loving chocolate).

On the other hand dynamic verbs express an action:

I eat chocolate.


Dynamic verbs can be used in the continuous tenses whereas stative cannot. However, some verbs fall into both categories, such as 'live' for example:

I have been living in London (dynamic) vs. I have lived in London (stative)

"I am loving chocolate (more and more)" is fine.

Even stative verbs can be used dynamically, especially when we want to express change, development or temporariness.
Even stative verbs can be used dynamically
So my question is: Is the stative/dynamic dichotomy a property of a given verb in itself? Or a property of its usage in a particular context? Or can both the verb itself AND its usage both have the stative/dynamic classification, which need not agree?

talking about dynamic and stative verbs again,

there is an " english math" as followings:

in S + V+ A, if A can be realized by steadily, then V is (a) ..............., not (b)...........

------> the answers for this questions is (a) : dynamic.... and ( b) : stative.

And i dont know why the key says so. Could you please help me do this " math problem" . Thank you very much.
Stative verbs infer a thought or emotion i.e. 'to think', 'to ponder' or 'to love', whereas dynamic verbs infer that some kind of action has, is or will be taking place i.e. 'to walk' or 'to destroy'.

Happy to help.
dynamic verbs means action.dynamic verb can convert into progrossive whlie stative verb is a state of mind in dynamic we have complete control on any act and our conscious is involved in dynamic
