(Grammar): A verb that is accompanied (either clearly or implicitly) by a direct object in the active voice. It links the action taken by the subject with the object upon which that action is taken. Consequently, transitive verbs can also be used in the passive voice when the direct object of the equivalent active-voice sentence becomes the subject.
a verb (or verb construction) that requires an object in order to be grammatical
(Gram.) Designating a verb that does not require a direct object
