Intransitive Verbs


An intransitive verb does not have a direct object and is complete without it. Who or what receives the action is missing.

He has arrived. They paused. She speaks fast. Alex fell. They laughed. Jason was reading. It rained. I coughed. The sun rose.

Words and phrases [adverb or prepositional phrase] that follow an intransitive verb generally answer the question 'how' or 'where'.

It rained across China. [prepositional phrase – 'where']
