英语的系动词look,appear,seem可以有进行时态吗

 

1. look

Look 用作系动词表示谈论暂时的外观时,可以用一般式或进行式,两者在意义上没有太大区别。如

You look [are looking] tired this evening. 今晚你好像很累。

You look [are looking] a bit tired. 你看起来有点累。

My boy is not looking [doesn’t look] very well. 我的孩子气色不太好。

注意:look后跟likeas if时习惯上不能用进行式。如:

她像她母亲。

误:She is looking like her mother.

正:She looks like her mother.

她好像在做梦。

误:She is looking as if she’s dreaming.

She looks as if she’s dreaming.

2. appearseem

appearseem用作系动词时习惯上不用于进行时态。如

他似乎相当富有。

误:He is appearing to be quite rich.

正:He appears to be quite rich.

在我看起来他好像很正常。

误:He is seeming to me quite normal.

正:He seems to me quite normal.
