The French grammar book that I am reading says that a transitive verb takes an object (ie, it takes a direct object, or an indirect object, or both). It also says that some transitive verbs can be used without an object and that for such verbs that are also "être" verbs, you have to remember something when using them in the passé composé: that if you are using them transitively, you must use "avoir" as the auxiliary verb instead of "être".
One example sentence surprised me. The following is a sentence that claims to be using "passer" as an intransitive verb.
Elle est passée à la boulangerie.
She went by the bakery.
However, "la boulangerie" looks very much like an indirect object (and thus, it looks like "passer" is being used transitively).
1. How can I use this dictionary entry for "passer" to confirm that "à la boulangerie" does not make "la boulangerie" an indirect object of "passer"?
2. Without using a dictionary, is it obvious (or even possible) to know that "la boulangerie" is not an indirect object? If so, how do you know this?
