WHAT IS TRANSITIVE AND INTRANSTIVE VERBS ? I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THE VIDEO LESSON
A transitive verb is a verb that denotes an action which passes over from the doer or subject to an object.
Example: The mother fed the baby;
- He filled up the form.
- They enjoyed the party.
An intransitive verb denotes an action which does not pass over to an object, or which expresses a state or being, such as:
- He ran a long distance.
- The balloon burst in the sky.
- Please keep quiet.
A matter needs to be noted here that most verbs can be used both as transitive and as intransitive verbs. It is, therefore, better to say that a verb is used transitively or intransitively rather than that it is transitive or intransitive.
