Verbs of perception
The verbs of involuntary perception (to see, to hear, to feel, to smell, to taste) have certain characteristics in common:
• They are often used with the auxiliary verb can:
• They are not conjugated in the progressive form, unlike verbs which express voluntary actions (‘to look (at)’, ‘to listen (to)’):
However they are also used to express voluntary actions and can therefore be conjugated in the progressive form:
Bruno is not seeing anybody today. (voluntary)
Horatio is feeling a banana leaf. He says he likes its texture. (voluntary)
Luna is tasting her cake. (voluntary)
• They are formed with an object followed by a verb in the infinitive without ‘to’ (like the verbs to watch, to observe…):
Verbs of perception: seem, appear
Your plan seems realistic.
He appears older than he really is.
Verbs of sense: look, feel, taste, smell, sound
The blue dress looks better.
This fabric feels lovely.
I didn’t enjoy the food. It tasted horrible.
These flowers smell beautiful.
That sound system sounds expensive.
