In syntax, intransitivity is a property held by a verb. Being intransitive means that a verb does not take one of the arguments that a transitive verb would normally take, the object. Instead, intransitive verbs take only one argument: the subject.

ExamplesEdit

In the following examples, the subject is in bold and the verb/verb phrase is underlined.

  • He eats.
  • She sleeps.
  • They talk.
  • Jonathon is dreaming.
