- appear用作系动词,接“to be+ n./adj. ” 或者介词短语、动词不定式或as if/though引导的从句, to be可以省略。当形容词是表语形容词时, to be不可省略。
- appear用作系动词的句子中可插入to sb,在强调时可移至句首。

- appear, look, seem
这三个词都可用作系动词,表示“看起来”。其区别是：1.在含义上, appear 强调外表上给人的某种印象,有时含实质上并非如此的意思; look意味着看上去如此,实际亦是如此; seem 则暗示判断有一定根据,这种判断往往接近事实。例如:
2.在用法上,这三个词都可跟形容词或“to be+形容词或名词”结构,也可用于It appears〔appeared〕/looks〔looked〕/seems〔seemed〕 as if...结构。但是, appear 和seem跟to- v 时仍表示“看起来”,而look 接to- v 则是“盼望”的意思。例如:
- He appears to be very young.
- He looks to be very young.
- He seems to be very young.
- He appears〔seems〕 to know it.
- He looks to hear from you.
- 另外, appear 和seem可用于It appears〔appeared〕/seems〔seemed〕 that...结构,而look不能。例如:
- ［误］ It looks to me that he enjoys read- ing the novel.
- ［正］ It appears〔seems〕 to me that he enjoys reading the novel.
- 还有, appear 和seem一般不用于进行体; 而look可用现在进行时,这和一般现在时所表示的意思无多大区别。例如:
- You are looking〔look〕 very unhappy.你看起来很不高兴。
- appear, emerge, loom
这三个词的共同意思是“出现”,其区别是：appear强调的是公开露面; emerge指从某个掩蔽处出现或摆脱遮挡物而被看见,强调“缓缓出现”; loom则强调眼前出现的物体好像从云雾中发出,无明显轮廓,即“朦胧出现”。
- appear emerge show loom
