An intransitive complete verb is a type of verb that does action but no one receives the action of the verb.


Intransitive verbs are verbs that do not transfer action to anyone or anything.


Two kinds of intransitive verbs-

(i) Linking Verbs
(ii) Intransitive Complete Verbs

Linking Verbs- Don't show any action. Simply link the subject with a noun or adjective.
Example- I (am) a teacher.

Intransitive Complete Verbs- They are complete without transferring their action to anyone or anything.
Example- Dogs (bark).
