According to the dictionary of the French Academy the verb apparaître does not require a preposition, like in the example:
Les difficultés apparaissent déjà.
Yet, in both online and printed sources I have come across sentences like these:
De nouvelles possibilities apparaissent.
De délicats souliers en verre apparaissent à ses pieds menus, elle ressemble à une princesse.
Is it acceptable to use apparaître with a prepositional phrase with DE? Does the verb acquire a new meaning in this case?
Many thanks for providing an answer.
