(1) He also considered permutation groups of small degree, groups having a small number of conjugacy classes, multiply transitive groups, and characteristic subgroups of finite groups.(2) The transitive property of equality says that if a = b and b = c, then a = c.(3) I glanced at Nick, who nodded, and the teacher went back to droning on and on about the transitive property in Geometry: easily the most boring class of the day.(4) The first part of the utterance seems to be in English, except for the verb rub which has been given the Tok Pisin suffix - im, which marks transitive verbs.(5) Furthermore, the verbs are usually transitive , though occasionally they are used intransitively with a preposition like for, of, or about introducing the object.(6) But it is the rare transitive use of the verb, with the action sent on to an object, that catches the attention of philologists.(7) The reason for this consequence is that identity is a transitive relation: that is to say, if a is identical with b and b is identical with c, then, of necessity, a is identical with c.(8) When most individuals in the group differ in size, stable dominance relationships generally yield transitive hierarchies consistent with size.(9) A grammar of Japanese will tell you that a transitive verb is positioned after its object, not before, because you couldn't guess that if no one told you.(10) However, some transitive verbs take a prepositional phrase instead of an indirect object.(11) One can determine to what degree cliques are present by measuring the amount of clustering, also sometimes referred to as transitivity .(12) It is straightforward, for example, to describe arbitrary patterns of transitiveness , functionality, etc., in Common Logic.(13) Strengthening is a special case of transitivity , in which the missing premise is a tautology: if C & A then A; if A, B; so if C & A, B.(14) In the past tense configuration, however, the Pashto agreement system is ergative: verb - subject agreement with intransitives, but verb - object agreement with transitives .(15) Unlike Romanian and English the two types of transitives in Japanese show no variation in the mapping from semantic to syntactic structure.(16) Are transitives conjoined with intransitives bad?
