TRANSITIVE or INTRANSITIVE VERBS.

REVISION: A verb is a word that expresses action or a state of being and is necessary to make a statement.
A verb expresses time—present, past and future—by using tense forms.
An action verb tells what someone or something does. Action verbs can express either physical or mental action.

  • She painted the picture. (physical action)
  • She likes Miró. (mental action)

A transitive verb is an action verb that is followed by a DO.

  • The chorus sang a new song. 


An intransitive verb is an action verb that is not followed by DO. 

  • The chorus sang loudly. 

Practice:

  1.  Lions pose a scientific enigma.
  2. Male lions possess big manes, sharp teeth, and stong muscles.
