Learn English – Using ‘stuck’ as a verb


The visual studio kept stucking under RDP yesterday

Should 'stuck' become a present tense verb? It seems like "getting stuck" is too long for the modern world where it happens much more frequently to things than it used to (See, for example, Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, "Share and enjoy").

Best Answer

It seems the answer should be no since the usage of 'stuck' (in the case of getting, being stuck) is as a modifier. A similar case could be made for "I am happy", as though 'am happy' should be a verb. It would see an equal amount of use; but structurally being a verb doesn't simplify anything or make it more concise/accurate.
