My question is not really about comparing things. My question is about expressing the quality of things, like characteristics.
For example, how do you say: 1. "it sounds like your work is very interesting!" 2. "he looks like he is very tired" 3. "this book looks like a hard read" 4. "this vase looks really heavy" 5. "this soup tastes like it took a lot of work" 6. "this flower smells like it should cost 1,000 dollars" 7. "this blanket feels like it has never been used"
I've heard 着 should be used in this case. Is this true? Can someone elaboration?
