Hi have asked this question:
You seem happy. (1) = You look happy.(2)=You appear happy.(3)?
Van Khanh answered:
look = appear (you are really happy)
seem (either you are happy or you aren’t happy).
Another person answered:
look (you are reakky happy)
seem = appear.(either you are happy or you aren’t happy).
For me, if someone says “You appear [something]” it would sound like that person had doubts about whether I really was [something] or was just trying to make it look that way.
I really don’t understand. The dictionary also answered in a general way.
How about your opinions, my experienced teachers?
