It has come to my attention that only half of our verbs that are eligible for the svin. marking have been marked as such:


The reason for this happening is almost certainly because not even Frommer uses the svin. convention to distinguish stative verbs from any other intransitive verb, and definitions from Na'viteri are entered directly into our database. Effectively, svin. does not even officially exist as a type.

A discussion in the Discord chat concluded that the svin. marking also does not provide anything particularly useful, and is a totally custom in-house type.

I would like to make a motion to:

1) convert all current svin. types to vin.
and
2) continue with vin. for all intransitive verbs, as released on Na'viteri

Would any second this?

I can fourth that as long as we can extract a list of stative verbs

A more effective method already exists for fwew users:

`fwew -r -p=vin. be`

It will list every stative verb by virtue of every one of their definitions including the word "be" . As seen in my previous post, this query already is more effective than the `/list pos has svin.` query, because half of our svin.s are currently just marked as vin. o.o

EDIT: Also, as Pamìrìk points out, is there anything inherently useful about stative verbs that isn't already covered by the fact that they are intransitive verbs? Usage-wise, they are really no different than any other vin. For this reason, I'm not sure if it's necessary for them to have a separate word class.

In that case it's fine by me. No need to be categorized svin. anyway.
