    Lightbulb the usage of remain +Ving / remain + past participle

    Hi Since remain can be followed Ving or p.p., why I have to say:
    'We here at Home Remodeling (company name) remain committed to reliable service...
    why not remain committing??

    Thank you!

    Default Re: the usage of remain +Ving / remain + past participle

    In that sentence you need the adjective 'committed', which is the same word as the p.p.
