3 STATIVE VERBS I understand the problem now . Certain verbs are not usually used in the progressive form . We use them in the simple form instead . Some of these verbs are : SENSES feel hear see smell sound taste THOUGHTS appear believe consider depend doubt forget guess hope imagine know mean understand realize seem suppose remember think prefer EMOTIONS dislike doubt fear hate like love need want wish POSSESSION / RELATIONSHIPS belong to have owe own possess MEASUREMENTS cost equal measure weigh Note : Sometimes we can use these verbs in the progressive . They then have a different meaning . I have an old car . ( I own = possession ) but : I’m having lunch with my older sister . ( eating lunch ) EXERCISE 8 Fill in the blanks with the correct form of the verb in brackets . 1 . prefers .......... ( prefer ) her coffee without sugar . 2 . I ..............................
