Syn. -- To appear; look. -- Seem, Appear. To appear has reference to a thing's being presented to our view; as, the sun appears; to seem is connected with the idea of semblance, and usually implies an inference of our mind as to the probability of a thing's being so; as, a storm seems to be coming. “The story appears to be true,” means that the facts, as presented, go to show its truth; “the story seems to be true,” means that it has the semblance of being so, and we infer that it is true. “His first and principal care being to appear unto his people such as he would have them be, and to be such as he appeared.” Sir P. Sidney.
