Kinds of Verbs
Category : 5th Class
There are three kinds of verb.
The verb which requires an object to complete its sense is called Transitive verb.
In the sentences given above, verbs 'arrived', 'provokes', 'kills' and 'has taken' can't make complete sense themselves. They need the object to make sense. Therefore, they are called transitive verbs.
The verb that does not require an object to complete its sense, but makes complete sense by itself is called an Intransitive Verb.
In the sentences given above, the verbs 'rings', 'blossom', 'burns' and 'move' do not need object to complete their sense. They make good sense by themselves. So these verbs are Intransitive Verbs.
The verb which helps the main verb to change its form or which does the work of main verb is called the Auxiliary or Helping Verb.
In first and second sentences, the words 'is' and 'has' are helping the verb 'water' and 'break' to change their forms.
In sentences three and four, the words 'am' and 'are' themselves are doing the work of verb. These words are also a kind of verbs. They are Auxiliary or Helping Verbs.
There are three kinds of main verb, i.e. helping verbs, regular verbs, and irregular verbs.
