TRANSITIVE: A transitive verb has an object. In other words, the action of the verb is transferred from the subject to the object.

Example (i) Ayo shouted at his wife  -obj.

(ii) Olu wrote a letter – obj.

(iii) Mr Ojo killed a goat – obj.

INTRANSITIVE VERBS: An intransitive verb does not need object for completion. It does not have an object. In other words, the action of the verb does not go across from the subject to the object. Example:

The baby cries.

Samuel laughs.

The pig grunts.

The lion roars.

The sun shines.
