bleiben mit sein

Warum das Verb "bleiben" braucht das Hilfsverb "sein", um das Perfekt zu bilden?

Danke :)

It is interesting that the verbs of MOTION often require SEIN for the perfect tenses, and BLEIBEN, which means 'not moving' also .requires the same verb;

Das Hilfsverb "sein" wird benutzt, wenn der Ort oder der Zustand ändert. Z.B.: Er ist gefahren, er ist gewachsen.

Bleiben gehört zu den Ausnahmen, wie auch gelingen, geschehen oder passieren. Es ist geblieben, es ist gelungen, es ist geschehen und es ist passiert.

Bleiben is an intransitive verb (it cannot take a direct object - you cannot "remain" anything) and so takes "sein". I think that any verb used intransitively takes "sein".

..." I think that any verb used intransitively takes "sein". "

ich habe gegessen?

(not sure if using it without a direct object is the same as using it intransitively (maybe there's an implied object ?))

Hi. Thanks for your comment. Got me thinking. I'm with you that there is possibly an implied object in the example you mention with "essen". I was thinking about verbs like "fliegen" which can be used in both ways and it takes the appropriate auxiliary verb but when used transitively the object has to be explicit in German (no implied object allowed - I don't think). Thanks again. :)
