Transitive and Intransitive Verbs

Intransitive verb :a verb that suffices itself with its actor. For example (Sat). 
So, for example, if one said:
جَلَسَ زَیدٌ
(Zayd sat) it would be a complete sentence.
 
Transitive verb: a verb that does not suffice itself with its actor. For example:
کَسََرَ
(he broke).
So, if one said:
کَسَرَ الخادِمُ
(the servant broke) it would be an incomplete
sentence unless one mentions the objective compliment afterwards.
For example:
کَسَرَ الخادِمُ إبریقاً
(the servant broke a pitcher.)
