"Good day!" said Monsieur Defarge, looking down at the white head that bent low over the shoemaking.
It was raised for a moment, and a very faint voice responded to the salutation, as if it were at a distance.
Q1: Is “it was raised for a moment” a stative passive rather than a participial adjective? If I add the word “very”, “it was very raised for a moment” does not sound right. Hence, “it was raised” is not a participial adjective.
Q2: I have read the explanation from the blog below in respect of dynamic passive, stative passive and participial adjective, and I found it difficult to clearly tell the difference between “stative passive” (which denotes an act) and “participial adjective” (which denotes the results of an act). Please could you explain the difference.
Q3: From the first link, is "the head was lifted " in "After a long silence, the head was lifted for another moment, and the voice replied, "Yes — I am working." " also a stative passive?
Q4: It seems to me that whether or not the words are considered as stative passive or participial adjective have very little practical difference. Can you tell the difference?
Q5: why did the author use passive?
