[JLPT grammar] ​For 安っぽく見える, can we use 安っぽい見える too?

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N3 course!



for 安っぽく見える, can we use 安っぽい見える too?

安っぽく見える It looks cheap.


[My Reply]

No, we can use 「っぽく」, but not 「っぽい」before 見える.

When it is added before a verb, the conjugation is っぽく.
〜っぽく+ verb

The conjugation of 〜っぽい is the same as i-adjective.
So, if it is followed by a noun or at the end of a sentence, we use っぽい.
〜っぽい+ noun

〜っぽいです。(end of a sentence)

I hope my answer helps you.😊
