is transitivity defined according to a semantic criterion?
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.
