In the test question: Le policier est descendu à la cave à la recherche de la bête féroce.
May I ask what the pronoun 'la' refer to in 'à la recherche'? and why recherche is not rechercher after the preposition 'à'?
« la recherche » - noun (f), not verb - (the) search. « à la recherche de » - basically translates as "in (the) search of".
I thought it was a new book by Proust.
