Verbs

The verb refers to an action that is performed. It may tell us:

        (a) What a person or thing does. For example, He plays.

        (b) What is done to a person or thing. For example, The door is locked.

        (c) What a person or thing is. For example, The glass is brittle.

 

Verbs are of two types- transitive and intransitive

Transitive Verbs:

The action passes over form the subject to an object, which is the recipient of the action. For example, Manu killed Jessica. Here killed is a transitive verb.

Intransitive Verbs:

 

The action does not have any succeeding object. Therefore this action does not pass over to any object. The children cried: here ‘cried’ is an intransitive verb.

An intransitive verb merely points to a condition or an action that does not pass over to an object.

 

Important:

 

Set, lay, and raise are always transitive and take an object. Sit, lie, and rise are always intransitive and do NOT take a direct object.
