My teacher told me that some verbs are transitive and they requires an object after them.
She gave me a long list of transitive and intransitive verbs to learn. Can anyone give me the logic why a particular verb is classified as transitive or intransitive so that without remembering these words i can tell by a particular sentence that a verb is transitive or intransitive.
For example, here is a sentence which my teacher told me is wrong as emphasize is a transitive verb:
The programme emphasizes with mentoring people to take risks and act in a more entrepreneurial way.
This correct sentence is :
The programme emphasizes mentoring people to take risks and act in a more entrepreneurial way.
