    to seem /to look like/to sound

    To seem, to look like and to sound like? Is there a difference among these verbs? Can I using them indifferently?

    We can often use them interchangeably. If the source is visual or aural, then it might be better to use the relevant verb- it would be starnge to look at dark clouds and say that it sounds like rain.
