    Re: about see verb

    Yes, I have blink, glare, gaze, gape, glower, gloat, leer, ogle, peer, peep, peek, squint, stare, scowl, wink, scan, sight, survey, notice, spot, note, face, look askance at, google, browse, observe, examine, eye, scrutinize, sightsee, watch and gawp.
    All of them are "ways of looking".

    You can look them up in dictionaries:
    Longman English Dictionary Online
    Cambridge Dictionary Online: Free English Dictionary and Thesaurus - Cambridge University Press - Cambridge Dictionaries Online - Cambridge University Press

    If you need more examples to understand some of them, maybe I can help.
