Pandiwang Palipat at Katawanin Worksheets

The two 15-item worksheets below ask the student to tell whether the underlined verb in the sentence is a transitive verb (pandiwang palipat) or intransitive verb (pandiwang katawanin).

The meaning of the verb is incomplete without the direct object. The direct object usually comes after the verb. Si Tatay ay umiinom ng mainit na kape.
