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.
