   Verbs which take an object are usually called transitive verbs. Verbs which do not take an object are usually called an intransitive verbs. Most birds can fly, the verb 'to fly' is intransitive, since it is used without an object. But in the sentence 'This pilot will fly the plane', the verb 'to fly' is transitive, since it takes the object plane.
