    @lucdiamond Transitive verbs are action verbs that require a direct object. The verb's action is transferred directly to the object, which can be a noun, pronoun, phrase, or clause. Intransitive verbs don't require a direct object. My dad goes to work every morning. My dad goes what or whom? That doesn't make sense, so there is no direct object. Therefore, go is an intransitive verb. [In this sentence, the natural question is: My dad goes where? Where questions are answered by prepositional phrases, such as 'to work.'] The tricky part: Many verbs can be either transitive or intransitive, depending on context. After we eat at my house, we can go outside. (intransitive) After we eat our sandwiches, we can go outside. (transitive) The truck runs on diesel gasoline. (intransitive) My uncle runs a restaurant. (transitive) I'm reading. (intransitive) I'm reading an article in TIME magazine about sharks. (transitive) This might be able to help you understand what transitive and intransitive is.
