A transitive verb
is an action verb that has a direct object. Remember that
a direct object (a noun or a pronoun) answers the question Whom? or What?
after the action verb. Thus, in the sentence, ‘‘The clown threw the toy into
the air,’’ the verb, threw, is transitive because (A) it is an action verb, and (B)
there is a direct object, toy.
Here are some other examples of transitive verbs. The verb is underlined, and
the direct object is italicized.
Danielle wanted pizza for lunch.
The old shed really needs repairs.
We believed him.
An intransitive verb is an action verb, but it does not have a direct object
following it. In the sentence, ‘‘Veronica remained here after the incident,’’
the intransitive verb, remained, does not have a direct object after it. No noun
or pronoun receives the action of the verb.
Some other examples of intransitive verbs are these.
They laughed quite loudly.
The boys sprinted from the alley.
These scientists know about physics.
Tips to success in Online Business
Take your losses early
Believe me I have been there. You purchase some inventory knowing you are going to make a killing and then it turns out it just wont sell. Or maybe you set up a new venture and no matter how hard you work or how much you spend you just cant get it to work. There is a time to be persistent and a time to quit. If you have inventory that is not selling, drop the price and get rid of it. You can use the money to invest into inventory that will sell. If you start a new venture give it a fair amount of time to become successful. As long as you see improvement and growth even if its slow, then you should keep going. But if you are not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel take your losses and move on.
