Direct Object

A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of a verb or shows the result of the action. It answers the question "What?" or "Whom?" after an action verb. An action verb with a direct object is called a transitive verb. The direct objects on this page are italicized.

Notice each question being answered: "Receives what?" "The action"; "Shows what?" "The question"; etc.
