to hurt(v) [intransitive] to feel painful My feet hurt.
I seldom hear people say "My feet is hurting."
And if "hurt" is a normal verb (can be used with continuous tense) people should say "My feet is hurting." to express a temporary action. But if "hurt" is a normal verb & if they say "My feet hurt.", then it sounds like "My feet hurt regularly.".
is the verb "hurt (v): [intransitive] to feel painful" a non-continuous verb?
I would say "to hurt(v) [intransitive] to feel painful" is a non-continuous verb but I am not sure
