Transitive verbs (with example)

Transitive verbs
Transitive verbs are verbs that require one or more objects.
Examples:
  • She cut the cake.
  • They climbed the mountain.
  • He gave her a flower.
The verbs cut, climbed, and gave have objects.
Transitive verbs
Objects
cut
the cake
climbed
the mountain
gave
her and a flower
Transitive verbs can be categorized into two types: monotransitive and ditransitive:
1.       Monotransitive verbs are verbs that require exactly one object.
Example:
He wrote
 a poem
2.       Ditransitive verbs are verbs that may require two objects, a direct object and an indirect object.
Example:
She offered
 him (first object) her car (second object).
Intransitive verbs
By contrast, intransitive verbs do not require an object.
Examples:
  • They run.
  • He died.
  • She slept.
  • It snows.
