Stative verbs do not descibe actions, but things that exist over time: 'live' is a stative verb, for instance. :eek:

I would say that is is a stative verb.

"That depends on what the meaning of is is."

Whatever you say, Bill. :)

Is can be stative. It can also be called a copula verb- a linking verb
