    Gah. I wasn't concentrating and described transitive/instransitive VERBS. Sorry about that.

    Basically, a transitive adjective is one which takes a direct object. In Japanese, it means it takes the particle が. Examples are "like" and "want".

    彼が好きです。 I like him.

    セーターが欲しいです。 I want a sweater.

    i'm uncertain.... i think of I talk and write rather lots, yet i will by no potential keep what an intransitive and a transitive verb are. It purely sort of comes certainly, the place to place a preposition. yet--and to no longer sound snooty or something--countless human beings do no longer talk besides as me. So i'm uncertain, yet human beings in all probability make that mistake.
