transition is a noun; not a verb
Authored by: Paul Burney on Nov 15, '01 12:36:53PM

Sorry about the off topic post, but....

According to the American Heritage Dictionary, (see reference), it is also an intransitive verb. According to the same source, an intransitive verb is one that doesn't take a direct object (see reference). So I suppose the usage is correct by current american standards.

If that's incorrect, please note that I'm a programmer, not a linguist.
