Basic Sentence Parts There are four… • Subject • Verb • Direct Object • Subject Complement
Intransitive Verbs Some sentences express a complete idea with nothing but a subject and verb.Verbs that do not take direct objects or subject complements are intransitive verbs. Ex: Rivers flow. Ex: She teaches.
Direct Objects Most sentences have a third part that identifies receiver of the action, which is called the object of the verb or the direct object. Ex: Germany invaded Poland. Ex: Kim teaches literature.
Transitive Verbs Verbs that take a direct object to complete the meaning of the sentence are transitive verbs.
