Fun With Dick and Jane

Fun With Dick and Jane (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Growing up I heard the phrase, “See with your eyes, not with your hands.” as I tried to touch some new glittering item while shopping with my sister. ‘Look’ and ‘See‘ can be used interchangeably, sometimes, but not always.

See Dick catch up and pass Jane.

 As in the previous post – “Look Where This Is Heading”, Look involves intention or expression

On the other hand, ‘See’ involves sight, to see something that comes into our sight or perceive in our mind.

to perceive with the eyes – “Did you see her new sports car?”;

faculty of sight – “I can’t see a thing without my eyeglasses.”;

to examine or watch something – “He asked to see my ID.”;

to comprehend or understand – “ I see what you mean.”;

to realize the existence of something – “I see from your documents that you are Austrian.”;

finding a trait that is pleasing – “My father sees the good in all people.”;

to meet or consult with somebody – “I’m going to see my shrink after lunch today.”;

to meet to raise a complaint – “She asked to see the manager.”;

to picture something in the mind – “I can’t see how she does it with all of those children.”

It is easy to see how these two words can be interchangeable and confusing if not used in the right context. For new English language learners this is just a small introduction into the use of ‘Look’ and ‘See’.

Continue to ‘look’ around this site to ‘see’ what you can find that will help you in understanding and using this wonderful language we call English.

If you have any more tips on how to use ‘Look’ and ‘See’ add them to the comment section.
