Verbs as action words can be used transitively or intransitively.
A transitive verb expresses an action which passes across to one or more persons or things. (Note that the word transitive’ originally came from the Latin word ‘transire’ which means “to pass across”). Transitive verbs take direct objects.

An intransitive verb is used without any objects. Examples

A dog barks.
A cock crows.
