    Re: stative/dynamic verbs dictionary

    The Collins Cobuild English Dictionary uses the notation VB: no cont (VERB: no continuous) in the margin notes for verbs that are not used in the continuous aspect (v-ing). This is a basic characteristic of stative verbs. That's about the closest thing I've seen to what you're looking for.
