    Non-conclusive verbs

    Hi all,

    I just have a quick question - are "non-conclusion verbs" the same as "stative verbs"?
    I found an article on the internet that says that "non-conclusion verbs" are those ones denoting physical and mental states, activities and perceptions for which no finality is contemplated or forseen.

    I had heard before about "stative verbs" and "dynamic verbs" ,but I had never heard about "non conclusive verbs"

    Thanks so much!! :)

    A S Hornby used the term in articles and books published in the 1940s and 1950s for what are now more generally know as stative verbs.
