s-tv-do patterns?
Subject-Transitive verb-Direct object. This pattern is one of the basic patterns and it would be hard to understand others if you do not understand this... so lets try giving an example: She wrote a lecture. [ Note that the word 'She' is italicized. The word 'She' is the Subject, and a subject is the word being described in a sentence, aka the 'DOER' of the action... She gave a lecture.
The word 'gave' is in bold font... why? Because the word 'gave' is the transitive verb. A transitive verb, to make it simple, is a verb that could not stand alone or complete the sentence with it and the subject alone. " She gave." Sounds silly, right? It is because this doesn't express a complete thought. She gave what? It must be completed by an object, right? This is the difference of a Transitive and an intransitive verb. "She gave" is incomplete while "She wrote" or "She ran" Is complete. These verbs no longer need an object although they too, may be used as transitive verbs at times. Rely on your stock knowledge or your understanding for that one. She gave a lecture. Now, the phrase "a lecture" is the direct object. Recall that a direct object is a noun that answers the question "What" or "Who" While an indirect object answers "For what" or "for whom" Read more: ]
