- For Teachers
Shy students are often oversensitive. When they enter a room full of strangers, they think everone is looking at them. In fact, most of these stragers are thinking about themselves, about how they look and how they feel.
I would like to ask you about the part how they feel. Which does it mean in this case, how others feel about them or how they themselves feel? I think the latter. I think this "the subject feel an adjective" can be ambiguous as this towel feels soft. In this case, the towel itself doesn't feel soft about itself. But about I feel good by J.B , is it I myself and someone too feel good like the towel?
How can you understandt the difference correctly?
Thank you very much.
You're right.Originally Posted by Progress
If feel is stative and its subject is [+animate] (i.e., a sentient being), it means to experience or undergo an emotional sensation.Originally Posted by Progress
Animate: I wonder how they feel.
Inanimate: I wonder how this towel feels. (i.e., it experiences or undergoes an emotional sensation)
Does that help?
Yes, Casiopea, it does very much Thank you very much.
