While stative verbs like want and think do not take the progressive form in Standard English, they must be expressed by the periphrastic

The two most commonly studied syntactic structures that describe causal relations involve lexical and periphrastic
a combination of a verb with a particular type of non-finite complement can acquire an aspectual or temporal meaning, giving rise to a new periphrastic
