    Default Are there any online resources that can tell if a verb is physical or mental verb?

    Are there any online resources that can list if a verb is a physical or a mental verb?

    I don't know, are there? I imagine that you can search as well as I can.

    Why would you ask the question when the Internet is right in front of you?

    We are people interested in and/or with some knowledge of teaching and/or the teaching of English. We are very happy to answer specific questions, but we are not here to replace dictionaries (see OneLook: General dictionary sites), grammars or search engines. When search engines are faster/more efficient than we are, we tell you.

    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Although I searched the internet already, I was hoping someone may know of a site that they can share with me... So even if someone may have searched the internet, their search could over looked important resources that someone else may have found. I think he/she took the question in a negative way. So that is why I said why reply to a question if you don't know the answer.

    As you probably saw in your last thread, the teachers here are not aware of any formal distinction between mental and physical verbs. We don't refer to them using those terms. I have never heard them used, nor do I use them. On that basis, it is very unlikely that any of us will know of any websites which cover a grammar aspect we don't think exists.

    The fact that you have already searched the net to no avail and have had these replies from various teachers should tell you something.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Who has told you that verbs have to belong to one of these categories?

    Why do you find it necessary to want to label them in this way?

    I think my reply makes it quite clear that not only do I not know if such sites exist, I don't care. I can't see any point at all in classifying verbs in that way.

    I would like to think everyone for trying help, and the near future, if you don't know the answer please do not waste your time responding back as someone else may know the answer.
