Verbs can have no object:
I am singing.
They can have a direct object (in the accusative case):
I am singing a song.
They can have an indirect object (in the dative case):
I am singing to you.
Some verbs require something known as a complement. These are usually verbs of seeming, being or becoming:
He seems happy.
She appears to be annoyed.
These people are unfortunate.
