Transitive and also an Action Verb
A transitive verb is a verb that requires a direct object to complete its meaning. Basically, the verb is transferred to the direct object. For example, in the sentence,"I… flipped the mattress," flipped is the transitive verb; its direct object is mattress. The mattress received the action, flipped. An intransitive verb is a verb that does not require a direct object to make sense. "In the sentence,"I fell," fell is the intransitive verb, since it does not transfer its action to a direct object. OR if you are her from a question from apex try "It is a verb that needs an object to make sense" in simpler words
Linking verbs are neither transitive nor intransitive. A transitive verb is an action verb that transfers its action to a direct object (someone or something that receives t…he action of the verb). Mark threw the ball. (ball is the direct object of the verb) An intransitive verb is an action verb that does not transfer its action. The ball bounced. (no direct object) A linking verb is a type of verb that connects the subject to a predicate nominative or predicate adjective (subject complement). Because linking verbs do not express an action, they cannot be transitive or intransitive. Mark is a baseball player. (baseball player is a predicate nominative and provides more information about the subject, Mark)Mark is awesome. (awesome is a predicate adjective)
Transitive, because it requires an object.
Can be either: transitive: She spoke many carefully considered words. intransitive: He spoke indecisively.
A transitive verb is a verb that takes an object; e.g. I drink milk. An intransitive verb does not take any word or group of words as its object; e.g. I sleep.
Actually, yes, a verb can be transitive and intransitive depending on the sentence. The verb eat, for example, is transitive in this sentence: "I ate an apple," but is intran…sitive in this one: "Lindsay already ate." Other verbs can be both as well, such as "play," "clean," and "read." Verbs are transitive when they precede a direct object, and they are intransitive when they do not.
sally went to the store. the subject is sally . the action verb is went. so sally went what. to the store so the sentence is intransitive. sally may go to the store. subject …sally. verb may is linking so the sentence is intransitive.
Answer A transitive verb is a verb that requires an object. Example: John surfed the internet. In this sentence the internet is the direct object of s…urfed. So surf is a transitive verb in this sentence. Caution! Some verbs may be transitive in one sentence, but intransitive (not taking an object) in another. For example: Jill spent the afternoon surfing. In this sentence surfing has no object, so surf is an intransitive verb in this sentence.
In the sentence "Shawn tells long crazy jokes" the verb "tells" is an action verb.
Transitive verb - it is a verb that requires a subject and one or more objects... Intransitive verb - it is a verb that cannot take a direct object
transitive verb is action verbs that are followed by direct objects. And intransitive verb is do not requile receivers of the action:)
It can be either - for example: # Jim's appetite is better and he is eating well. (Intrans). # Anne ate her supper. (Trans).
i can only answer transit it is a verb that has a direct objet ps-a direct object is a noun that is right after a verb
A sentence with a transitive verb (an action verb that has a direct object) is "I moved a sofa". A sentence with an intransitive verb (an action verb that does not have a dire…ct object) is "I giggled".
An intransitive verb is a verb that does not need a direct object to complete its meaning - run, sleep, travel or wonder are all such verbs. . A transitive verb is a verb …accompanied by a direct object from which a passive can be formed. Such as - rectify, deny or elect. . Some verbs can be transitive in one sentence and intransitive in another. Such as - I turned the wheel sharply (where turned is transitive in this sentence) or he turned when I called (turned in this case is intransitive)
