    Re: transitive verbs

    Explain can either be mono- or ditransitive.

    Can you explain this to us? (direct and indirect object = ditransitive)

    How do you explain her strange attitude? (direct object = monotransitive)

    I suppose 'discuss' is monotransitive. As I'm not sure, we'd better wait for a teacher's explanation.
