    Default remain and stay

    Dear teachers,

    We can say " to main/stay calm". We can say " to remain unconvinced". Could you please kindly explain if we say " to stay unconvinced"?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Dear tdol,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Now I see. It's something to do with idiomatic use.
