Verbs are words of action, but they can be broken into two different subsets. They are said to be transitive if it is an action and followed immediately by a direct object. You may see instances of transitive verbs that have an indirect object before the direct object. If the verb does not take a direct object, it is called an intransitive verb. You will often find that intransitive forms are proceeded by an adverb or prepositional phrase. The names of these verbs causally relate to their function in a sentence. You will find them in most dictionaries labelled in one of these two forms. In order to best understand how these parts of speech operate in a statement focus on the meaning behind it. These worksheets help students learn to classify the form of a verb in a sentence.
