Transcript of Transitive Verbs

Transitive Verbs Sentences are made up of 2 parts The Subject: The man slept. The Predicate: The man slept. Hypothesis:
We agreed with the article and Green’s hypothesis where female toilets would be more polite and interactive where males would be the complete opposite. Significance: So What? What does it matter? Transitive Verbs Predicate includes --> the Verb Verbs
They are basic to the sentence
It isn't a sentence without one
There are six types of verbs Formula = NP VT NP:Obj
They are followed by Noun Phrases (don't confuse with a Prep Phrase)
The Noun Phrase that comes after the verb is called a "Direct Object"
Often, the Direct Object has something "done" to it by the Subject.
Transitive verbs can usually be made into a passive sentence. Ash caught all the pokemon. NP Pikachu slept in the pokeball. Prep Phrase Curious George peeled the banana. NP:DO As you can see, the subject is "doing" something the the object
This can be seen more easily when organized into a passive sentence Santa delivered the presents.

The presents were delivered by Santa. NP:DO VT Sub A good way to find the Direct Object is to ask the question What? or Who? Tom Hanks made a friend. Q: Tom Hanks made what?
A: a friend. The ocean nearly drown Tom Hanks. Q: The ocean nearly drown who?
A: Tom Hanks. If you can answer these questions with a logical answer, odds are good it is a Transitive verb. Take a minute to write a plot summary of your favorite movie. Go through the plot summary you wrote on your favorite movie and see how many transitive verbs you are able to pick out.
