Do you remember the transitive verb? If you don’t, I’ll tell you. It is a verb that requires one or more objects. Intransitive verbs have no objects. Transitivity is thought of as global property of a clause, by which activity is transferred from an agent to a patient. It is a little higher in popularity and first known usage was in 1634.
