TIME OF DAY:
INTRANSITIVE VERB:
ADVERB:
INTRANSITIVE VERB:
ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL:

TRANSITIVE & INTRANSITIVE VERBS:

Transitive Verbs require a direct object.Intransitive verbs cannot have a direct object.
✅ I deleted the entry. ("The entry" is the direct object.)
✅ I deleted it. ("It" is the direct object.)
✅ I smiled.
✅ I smiled at her. ("At her" is a prepositional phrase, not an object.)
❌ I deleted. (This is an incomplete idea with no direct object.)❌ I smiled the baby. (This makes no sense with a direct object.)
Therefore, since "delete" requires an object to function correctly, it is a TRANSITIVE VERB.Therefore, since "smile" cannot have a direct object, it is an INTRANSITIVE VERB.

*Some verbs can be transitive and intransitive, depending on the context:

TRANSITIVE: I started the machine.
INTRANSITIVE: The machine started.

@EstherTb you seem to have gotten transitive and intransitive verbs mixed up. transitive means it requires an object, whereas intransitive requires none. in other words, transitive verbs would work for the sentence "he X-ed the apple" whereas intransitive verbs work for the sentence "he X-ed." obliterated is a transitive verb (he obliterated the apple), not an intransitive one (he obliterated).

that proves it's transitive, actually. as a counterexample, "dance" is generally an intransitive verb, and doesn't work: "i was danced"

I edited it ;) thanks for pointing it out! I was kinda on the fence about it thinking along the lines of what TheJLT said..

i'm attempting to use the same grammar you used in your sample sentences.

"i obliterated" makes as much sense as "i deleted" (her example "incorrect" transitive verb sentence)

I know... But the truth is. I like arguing over nothing. I see that you like to reach a consensus. Not me. I either want to be right or keep arguing forever.

i do that as well, sometimes, but generally if a consensus can't be reached, the opposing parties have to either agree to disagree, or simply ignore eachother (unless they outright destroy one another). arguing forever about semantics and fiddly grammar bits is inefficient.

I chose to be this way because my father was my English teacher.
