A transitive verb
is an action verb that has a direct object. Remember that
a direct object (a noun or a pronoun) answers the question Whom? or What?
after the action verb. Thus, in the sentence, ‘‘The clown threw the toy into
the air,’’ the verb, threw, is transitive because (A) it is an action verb, and (B)
there is a direct object, toy.
Here are some other examples of transitive verbs. The verb is underlined, and
the direct object is italicized.
Danielle wanted pizza for lunch.
The old shed really needs repairs.
We believed him.
An intransitive verb is an action verb, but it does not have a direct object
following it. In the sentence, ‘‘Veronica remained here after the incident,’’
the intransitive verb, remained, does not have a direct object after it. No noun
or pronoun receives the action of the verb.
Some other examples of intransitive verbs are these.
They laughed quite loudly.
The boys sprinted from the alley.
These scientists know about physics.
Rules to play Cross Country Skiing
The winner in each event will be the competitor with the best position in that event.
The province/territorys three best able bodied positions and the best Para Nordic
position for each gender and event will count towards the provincial/territorial ranking
point total (if ranked higher than 69th in able bodied and higher than 20th in Para Nordic
as indicated in the charts below). Other scores are omitted. Para Nordic positions will be determined by adjusting real time by the percentage for each athlete according to their
classification.If there is a tie, points will be shared equally between competitors (i.e. If tied for first then
each competitor would receive 97.5 points (100+95)/2). If an athlete does not finish or is
disqualified, the athlete does not receive any points.
