    Default Re: transitive and intransitive verbs

    Transitive verbs normally refer to an action performed by the subject on something or someone else, while intransitive verbs (reflexive verbs) don't.

    Transitive:

    She advises a friend. (She gives advice to a friend)
    I run.

    Intransitive:

    She advises with a friend (She gets advice from a friend)
    I run a report by my boss.
