    Darauf gestoßen bin ich im Rahmen meines Englischkurses, unsere Lehrerin (muttersprachlich irisch) hatte das korrigiert, obwohl ich es vorher hier nachgeschlagen hatte.
    Ist vielleicht keine "falsche Übersetzung" im eigentlichen Sinne, da die Grundform ja korrekt ist, sollte aber vielleicht doch verbessert werden

    How sweet, w, thank you for the nicely identified source. You're getting a little better every day. Just keep practicing. (-:

    Transitive without an indirect object. Whatever.
