Of Verbs. All verbs may be classed under three heads; to wit: those that are transitive; those that are intransitive, and those that are neuter.

A transitive verb expresses an action done by an agent to an object, as: Mary loves knowledge. Here the act of loving passes from Mary the agent, to knowledge, the object; hence, love is a transitive verb.

An intransitive verb expresses an action done by an agent, to which it is confined; it is generally followed by a preposition, as: James plays at ball. Here the act of playing is confined to the agent, James, and the noun ball, is the object after the preposition, at; therefore, plays, is an intransitive verb.

A neuter verb merely expresses the being or state of being of its agent. The verb, to be, through all its variations, is the only neuter verb in the language. Mary is present. Here, the verb, is, expresses the state of being or condition of its agent, Mary.

Obs. 1. Mr. Murray says, that to run, to sit, to lie, to ride, &c. are neuter verbs; but it troubles the young scholar, to divest them of the idea of action. The distinction is certainly more philo sophical than useful.

Obs. 2. There are a few verbs that may be used either transitively or intransitively; but a verb that is legitimately transitive, should never be used intransitively.

The girls write letters. The boys play at foot ball. The city is quiet. Fruits are plenty. A fish swims in water.
