Transitive and intransitive verbs

      Феълхои монда ва гузаранда

An action verb with a direct object is transitive while an action verb with no direct object is intransitive. Some verbs, such as arrive, go, lie, sneeze, sit, and die, are always intransitive;  it is impossible for a direct object to follow.

Other action verbs, however, can be transitive or intransitive; depending on what follows in the sentence. Compare these examples:

Because of blood sugar problems, Rosa always eats before leaving for school.

Eats=intransitive verb

If there is no leftover pizza, Rosa  usually eats whole -grain cereal.

Eats=transitive verb; cereal=direct object.7

A transitive verb is one that is used with an object: a noun, phrase, or pronoun that refers to the person or thing that is affected by the action of the verb.

I admire your courage.

We need to maintain product quality.

An intransitive verb does not have an object.

The baby was crying.

I work for a larg firm in Paris.

The choir sang carols, [transitive]

Pate always sings in the bath, [intransitive].
