- When we say "The glass was broken" it means when we looked at it, it had been broken before, that is, it shows a state that could be spread over a period of time. But when we say "it got broken" it shows a happening at a particular point of time.
- But that is not true for the verb "bear". When it changes to passive form, it won't be a state, but a happening. When I say "I was born in 1990" it dosn't show a state, but a happening at a point of time. So I wouldn't need to say "I got born in 1990."
What's the difference between these 2 verbs "1.break" and "2. bear"?
These have the same structure above, but different meaning in passive forms using be verbs. One shows a state and the other shows a happening.
