Comments for 降りる

If you have any questions about this entry, or would like to write a sample sentence using the vocabulary, please do so below. Your comment will appear in the forum for other users of the site to view and discuss.

It is intransitive.  The thing to think about in that case is what object is descending the stairs.  Is it the person descending the stairs, or the person causing the stairs to descend?

For some verbs (usually involving self-movement), you can use the を particle to indicate the object that you are moving in or on. 泳ぐ is another verb that you often see this with.

Is 降りる actually not tranistive? Because in the textbook I am using to learn Japanese, 降りる is used as a transitive verb; for example: 階段 を 降りる ("kaidan o oriru", to go down the stairs). Can anyone explain as to why 降りる is listed here as intransitive?
