I always see "reminisce" paired with "about." Like here:


Ray pauses to point out the Whisky a Go Go, on Sunset Boulevard, and reminisces about the night Elvis Presley went there to see the Kinks play. —David Wild, Rolling Stone, 13 May 1993

It is correct to use the word without "about?" Example:

I reminisce her in scenes clumsily filmed by my mind.

  • The verb recall can be used in that way: I recall her in scenes... – Tᴚoɯɐuo Sep 24 '18 at 12:45

reminisce does not take a direct object.

You can determine this by consulting a good dictionary and looking to see whether the verb is marked as transitive (accepts a direct object) or intransitive.

In some dictionaries it will be abbreviated [T] or [I] while in others it will be spelled out.
