Transitive verb Wikipedia

A transitive verb is a verb that accepts one or more objects. This contrasts with intransitive verbs, which do not have objects. Transitivity is traditionally thought a global property of a clause, by which activity is transferred from an agent to a patient.

Transitive

English verbs are split into two major categories depending on how they function in a sentence transitive and intransitive. Transitive verbs take one or more objects in a sentence, while intransitive verbs take no objects in a sentence.

Most sentences have a subject (the thing or person who is carrying out an action), a verb and an object (the thing or person that is involved in an action, but does not carry it out), for example in this sentence i is the subject, cleaned is the verb and the car is the object.
