Ask A Teacher: Look, Appear and Seem

名师答疑:look、appear和seem的区别

Welcome to Ask a Teacher–a new program where readers ask questions and teachers answer them.

欢送收听名师答疑节目,读者可在这档新节目中发问,教师会停止解答。

Have you ever noticed that English is full of words that have similar meanings? In today's Ask a Teacher, Mika from Japan asks how to decide among three verbs that all mean "give an idea about something."

你能否留意到英语中四处都是意思相近的单词?明天的名师答疑节目中,来自日本的美嘉讯问了三个都表达“对某事见解”寄义的动词怎样运用。

Here is her question:

以下是她的题目:

I don't understand the difference between "look," "appear" and "seem." If I say, "His new haircut makes him appear younger," is it correct?

我不太了解look、appear和seem三者之间的干系。假如我如许说:“His new haircut makes him appear younger”,如许对吗?

Hello Mika and thanks for your question!

美嘉你好,感激你的发问!

You can use "appear" in that situation, but the better verb would be "look."

那种情境下你可以用“appear”,但最好运用动词“look”。

Let me give you the reasons why.

让我来通知你缘由。

We use both the verbs "look" and "appear" to talk about a condition we have observed. In your sentence, you can see with your eyes how stylish the man's new haircut is. You also see that it gives his face a more youthful shape.

我们可以用动词“look”和“appear”讨论我们察看到的状况。你的句子中写道,你可以看到男子的新发型十分时兴。你也可以看到新发型让他的脸看起来更年老。

But "look" is more informal than the verb "appear." Your sentence sounded informal, as if you were talking to a friend.

但是动词“appear”比“look”改正式。你的句子听起来比拟非正式,仿佛是和冤家在谈天。

In contrast, you might see the word "appear" in writing, or hear it in formal speech, such as an official news report. For example, a news reporter might say, "The suspect appeared to be fleeing the scene."

反过去,“appear”能够会呈现在写作或是正式演讲中,比方说官方的旧事陈诉。比方,旧事记者能够会说:“怀疑人好像已逃离现场。”

As that example shows, "appear" is commonly used to talk about events and facts.

正如上述事例所述,“appear”通常用于讨论事情或现实。

Your third choice, "seem" also means "to create an idea or impression." But "seem" does not suggest a direct observation. For example, you and I may have talked on the phone, and you told me about your great new job and recent vacation. Afterward, I could say, "Mika seems happy," even though I never saw you smile.

你的第三个选择“seem”的寄义也是“建立想法或印象”。但是“seem”是指非直观印象。比方,你和我在打德律风,你通知我你的新任务十分棒,你近来的假期。之后我就可以说:“美嘉好像很开心”,即便我没有瞥见你浅笑。

Keep in mind one other difference among the three words. "Seem" and "appear" are often followed by an infinitive verb, such as "The baby seems to want her bottle..." or "The man appears to be waving."

还要记着三个词的另一个差别。seem和appear后通常接不定式,比方“The baby seems to want her bottle…” 或许 “The man appears to be waving”。

But, in everyday English, the verb "look" is often followed by an adjective. For example: "He looks tired."

但在一样平常英语中,动词look后通常接描述词。比方“He looks tired”。

And that's Ask a Teacher.

以上便是本期名师答疑的全部内容。
