Walking into the mine.
hi, dear, what are transitive and intransitive verbs? i am not a teacher i am student of english , thank you.
What is current policy in teaching English to foreigners (or to natives, for that matter) when there are differences between strictly correct grammar and the kind of slipshod English we see every day in newspapers etc? Three examples: plural antecedent with a singular noun following, e.g. "he is one of those people who likes his own way" (instead of "like their own way"). Confusion between transitive and intransitive forms, e.g. "they sank the enemy ship" (transitive verb "sink" requires the past tense "sunk"), or "lie the baby on its side" instead of "lay". And strong verbs made weak, e.g. "sweared" (swore), "beared" (bore) etc. As for the difference in formal English between "will" and "shall" - don't get me started. Would any teacher of English care to comment?
