  1. Transitive Verb

Transitive verbs are those action verbs that can have a noun attached directly to them.

Examples:

  • They hit ball,
  • The students answer questions.
  1. Intransitive Verb

Intransitive verbs are those action verbs that cannot attach directly to a noun; they need the help of a preposition. (Also read other article at : Fungsi dan Rumus Modal WOULD)

Definition of Verb

       A Verb is the action word in a sentence that describe what the subject is doing. Along with noun, verb is the main part of a sentence or phrase, telling a story about what is taking place. In fact, without a verb, full thoughts can’t be properly conveyed, and even the simplest sentences, such as Maria sings, have one. Actually, a verb can be a sentence by itself, with the subject, in most case you, implied, such as, Sing! and Drive! (Also read other article at : Dark Vision Consequence) read more

I have opened the door.

            They listen to the radio.
