How come 'like' is not an action? 'Like' is a verb right? Aren't verbs actions? How do I know what's an action and what's not?I will like to thank you. (Incorrect)
'will' expresses volition: an action is required. The word 'like' is not an action, so it's not compatible with 'will'.
Is 'believe' an action?
What do these mean?
1. Would you believe it?
2. Will you believe it?
Verbs can be actions or states:
I am stupid.
This isn't an action; it sdescribes the way I am over time. 'I like coffee' doesn't describe an action, but how I feel about coffeee- drinking is the action.
