Intransitive Verbs with Examples An intransitive verb is a verb that does not take a direct object. The subject of the verb acts without being acted upon by anything else.

The dog is jumping, and nothing is jumping with him or affecting his jump.

A transitive verb must have at least one direct object to complete its meaning. The direct object receives the action of the verb. Example: The dog ate the meat.
