    Default transitivity

    is transitivity defined according to a semantic criterion?

    Without any larger context and samples, it's really tricky to answer your this question.
    As far as my teeny weeny knowledge goes, as usual, transitivity is closely related to semantic. For example,

    1a. I can see.
    1b. I can see you.

    2a. She didn't even trouble to look at our presents.
    2b. Don't trouble troubles until troubles trouble you.

    Your further context or samples will be much appreciated.
