My friend had a homework exercise about stative verbs in their English class and asked me to help with it. The task was to mark sentences that were correct. There was one difficult sentence there:
I am preferring fish to meat.
In the other column, there was the same sentence in Present Simple:
I prefer fish to meat.
To me, it looks like the sentences are both correct. The latter means "I always/usually prefer fish to meat", the former means "Right now I am choosing fish, not meat, while I could usually prefer meat to fish.".
So, can I use "prefer" as a dynamic verb, meaning something along the lines of "choose", not "like"?
