You parsed it correctly. Excellent!
Transitive refers to a verb's syntactic properties, structure. That is, it requires an object. 'complex transitive' is a new term for me. Does it mean di-transitive? If so, it refers to the verb's syntactic properties. 'intensive' refers to the verb's semantic properties, meaning.To say that a verb is transitive, complex transitive, intensive, etc, is it the NATURE of the verb / its GRAMMATICAL CLASS that we are giving? What do we call this analysis exactly ?
