Good day everybody,
let's have a look at the following sentence, please:
Everything that happened still reflects now.
I ask myself if the verb reflect can be used like that.
As far as I have understood, the verb reflect can be used as a transitive verb wich needs an object
= someting reflects something OR
as a intransitive verb with the meaning of thinkind at depth about something (pondering):
I am reflecting about the isse. I need to make a decison.
What do the expert think?
I agree with you. Perhaps the writer means "resonates" instead of "reflects"?
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
