I read in a book that we can make a dynamic verb into a state verb by using an adverb in the present simple tense.


I'm washing my clothes now.


I wash my clothes every day.

Is that correct?

  • If you say your clothes “are washed”, you could claim “washed” as the state of your clothes. But saying that “[you] wash” the clothes isn’t making a claim about their state or yours. – Lawrence Mar 8 at 12:59
