Beberapa kata kerja menunjukkan aksi/perbuatan/tindakan, kata kerja semacam inilah yang disebut "dynamic", dan bisa digunakan pada continuous tenses.
Kata kerja yang lain mengammbarkan keadaan/state (non-action, a situation). Kata kerja semacam ini disebut "stative", dan tidak dapat digunakan pada continuous tenses (though some of them can be used with continuous tenses with a change in meaning).

Dynamic verbs (examples):

  • He is running, 
  • They are studying
  • We are eating

Stative verbs (examples):

  • like, love, prefer, wish
  • impress, please, surprise
  • hear, see, sound
  • belong to, consist of, contain, include, need
  • appear, resemble, seem
