We have three kinds of past:
I had a car / I used to have a car / I was having a car.
- What is the difference in your understanding of the meaning of these three sentences?
As I understand we have:
non-action verbs: have, think, want, live ...
action verbs: run, read, listen, move, jump ...
And then how do you understand the meaning of phrases like 'used to have' or 'used to think', 'used to live'?
- And high question: Are past simple and 'used to' interchangeable? "I lived in London" and "I used to live in London." What is the difference? My guess is that the difference is in the period of time of living. And if this is true, from what period of time of a non-action verb can I use 'used to'?
