bleiben mit sein
Warum das Verb "bleiben" braucht das Hilfsverb "sein", um das Perfekt zu bilden?
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. :)
