Les verbes d’état /verbes attributifs are verbs which denote a state of being, or a change in state of being, the verb ‘être’ being the one most used in language.
The list also include -
avoir l’air, paraître, sembler, rester, demeurer......
Unlike the transitive and intransitive verbs, which have direct/ indirect objects or not, the verbs of state have an attribute which can be an adjective, adverb or a nominal group which changes the state they describe.
Take a look at the updated Kwiziq lesson on ‘demeurer’ as an example..
Hope this helps!
