✲He stopped finding the key. [achievements] (1)
He stopped painting the house. [accomplishment] (2)
(The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language)
It seems like reason (1) is wrong. is finding is an event occurring at a point in time, while painting is a durative process. Isn't there any duration at all in the word find? If there isn't, how do we have to correct the first sentence for the meaning of stopping the activity of finding the key?
