transparaître

transparaître

I have noticed that transparaître and derivatives are seen with both être and avoir as auxiliaries.  I assume it's because of transitive and intransitive verb usage. Is this the reason ? Can you please give me some examples.

Hi Michael,

Transparaître ( to show through/to be reflected in ) et comparaître (to appear) are derivatives of paraître

Apparaître uses mainly 'être ', see my answer to Maarten  -

Transparaître uses mainly 'avoir' -

Hope this helps!
