Instructor Video: Verbs in Urdu

Verbs are action words. Like all languages, Urdu verbs can be classified into three categories.

a) Intransitive verbs: Verbs that require only one noun. A noun can be the subject or object of a sentence. For example: Walk, Swim, Sleep, etc.

b) Transitive verbs: Verbs that require two nouns. One acts as a subject and other as an object. For example: Eat, Drink, Read, etc.

c) Di-transitive verb: Verbs that require three nouns. Nouns act as a subject, indirect object, and direct object in a sentence. For example: Give, Send, Receive, etc.
