My understanding was that "ricordere", when used outside of the infinitive or imperative, is always reflexive. So why isn't the Italian phrase, "Mi ricordo la risposta del direttore."?
I was confused too, but apparently some verbs can be used in either the regular form or the reflexive form http://blogs.transparent.com/italian/reflexive-verbs/
I answered "I remember the answer from the director" Why it was not accepted ? It means the same as "director's answer" And why is our English writing corrected some times ? We are learning Italian not English. Italian should be corrected.
