Grade 5 - English Language
Transitive and Intransitive Verbs

An intransitive verb can stand alone in the predicate because its meaning is complete.
Examples:
The plant grows.
The mouse squeaked.
The cat will run.

A transitive verb needs a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object.
Examples:
The mouse wants cheese. Here, cheese tells what the mouse wants.
The deer saw the hunter. Here, hunter tells what the deer saw.
The tree will lose its leaves. Here, leaves tell what the tree will lose.

Both transitive and intransitive verbs can be in the past, present or future tense.
