transitive locative: send e.g. John sent flowers to Mary NP+VP+NP+PP
hang e.g. Peter hung the picure on the wall NP+VP+NP+PP
are there any other transitive locative verbs, that you MUST write the prepositional phrase? Please help!
intransitive locative:walk e.g. I walked in the park (gotta say where right? so VP needs prepositional phrase PP? as a must right? or since I can say: I walked yesterday it's not considered intransitive locative, believe me I've googled since yesterday and can't find a clear explanation on this subject.
live, e.g. I live in Lima
sit, e.g. I sat on the sofa (that I'm 100% sure! at least that is intransitive locative VP+PP)
work, e.g. I work at KPMG (but still I can say I work hard sooo? how do I divide the one that are only intransitive locative??)
stand, e.g. I stand behind the door
Please give me a light here!
