noun 
  1. (grammar) A verb that requires (in the unmarked form) both a direct object and an indirect object so as to be grammatical.
Example: 'give' requires both a gift and a receiver, as in 'give the dog a bone'. Neither 'give the dog' nor 'give a bone' are grammatically complete.
Note: "I don"t give a hoot" is not considered the unmarked form.
