il a oublié?

il a oublié?

Il devait me rappeler, mais il a oublié !


Should this be "il l'a oublié"? It sounds weird without a direct object for oublier.

Hi Diego,

It is correct to say -

Il a oublié ( de me rappeler) as in English,= He has forgotten ( to call me back )

'Il l'a oublié' would refer to an object like a tablet, a phone, a book ...

e.g.

Son passeport? Il l'a oublié, il est dans son tiroir His passport? he has forgotten it, it is in his drawer

Hope this helps!
