    Verbs with Two Meanings

    Some verbs have two different meanings or senses. For one sense we must use a simple tense. For the other sense we can use a continuous or simple tense.

    For example, the verb to think has two different senses:

    1. to believe, to have an opinion
    I think red is a sexy colour.

    2. to reflect, to use your brain to solve a problem
    I am thinking about my homework.

    In sense 1 there is no real action, no activity. This sense is called "stative". In sense 2 there is a kind of action, a kind of activity. This sense is called "dynamic".

    When we use the stative sense, we use a simple tense. When we use the dynamic sense, we can use a simple or continuous tense, depending on the situation.

    Look at the examples in the table below:
