Ask A Teacher: Look, Appear and Seem

名师答疑:look、appear和seem的差别

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

迎接收听名师答疑节目,读者可在这档新节目中提问,师长教员会停止解答。

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到处都是意思邻近的单词?明天的名师答疑节目中,来自日本的美嘉询问了三个都表达“对某事看法”含义的动词若何应用。

Here is her question:

以下是她的成绩:

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

我不太懂得look、appear和seem三者之间的关系。假设我如许说:“His new haircut makes him appear younger”,如许对吗?

Hello Mika and thanks for your question!

美嘉你好,感激你的提问!

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

那种情境下你可以用“appear”,但最好应用动词“look”。

Let me give you the reasons why.

让我来告诉你缘由。

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”评论辩论我们不雅察到的情况。你的句子中写道,你可以看到汉子的新发型异常时髦。你也能够看到新发型让他的脸看起来更年青。

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

然则动词“appear”比“look”更正式。你的句子听起来比较非正式,仿佛是和同伙在聊天。

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”能够会涌如今写作或是正式演讲中,比如说官方的消息申报。例如,消息记者能够会说:“嫌疑人仿佛已逃离现场。”

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

正如上述事例所述,“appear”平日用于评论辩论事宜或现实。

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”的含义也是“创假定法主意或印象”。然则“seem”是指非直不雅印象。例如,你和我在打德律风,你告诉我你的新任务异常棒,你比来的假期。以后我便可以说:“美嘉仿佛很高兴”,即使我没有看见你浅笑。

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."

还要记住三个词的另外一个差别。seem和appear后平日接不定式,例如“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."

但在平常英语中,动词look后平日接描述词。例如“He looks tired”。

And that's Ask a Teacher.

以上就是本期名师答疑的全部内容。
