連綴動詞,表達外物的樣貌

與感官經驗相關的另一組動詞,一般教科書上稱為「連綴動詞」,如 look like、sound like、smell like、feel like⋯⋯等。這類動詞傳達並非以「感知者」為主體的知覺經驗(I see...、I hear...),而是以「刺激物」為主體的樣貌呈現,描述外物的樣貌所引發的感受(It looks...、It sounds...)。因此「外物」要放在前面作主詞,再形容所感受到的樣貌特徵, 稱為「連綴」的意義即在於用以連結客觀的「外物」和主觀的「樣貌感受」:

 V + 形容詞   It looks pretty.


                       It sounds funny.

                       It smells bad.

V + like 介系詞 + 名詞  It looks like a bird.

                                     It sounds like a bird.

                                     It feels like a stone.
