    Well,...

    見る= Means the verb View/See

    ...This is what you wanted to know, not?

    Re: The difference between Miru and Miteru ?

    Yes I suppose, But 'Look' and 'See' are terms used synonymously in English. Since you also mentioned appear, is 'Look/miteru" it in the sense of "how does it look" only, and never in the sense of, come and 'Look' at this?

    Re: The difference between Miru and Miteru ?

    It really depends on the context, but it's usually just a difference in tense.

    Miru = will see
    Mite(i)ru = am seeing/is watching

    Re: The difference between Miru and Miteru ?

    Yes, MoodWhiplash is pretty correct.


    miru 見る
    mieru 見える
    miteru/miteiru 見てる/見ている

    These three forms show the difference of tense. And additional status of sense modes.

    ジェインは、花を見る Jein wa hana wo miru :: Jane looks at a flower. Jane sees a flower (flowers).
    Basically "present", and sometimes "future". e.g. ジェインは、明日、花を見る :: Jane will see the flower tomorrow.

    (ジェインには)、花が見える (Jein ni wa) Hana ga mieru :: (For Jane), Flower is there (in the vision, in the scope of sight).
    "Present". And this is not "active", nor "passive". But "Neutral mode".
    Not the structure of "Subject V Object". No subject.
    Also, "mieru" shows possibility.
    Nani ga miemasuka? - Hana ga mieru. ( What can you see? - I can see a flower.)

    ジェインは、花を見てる Jein wa hana wo miteru :: Jane is watching a flower. Jane is seeing a flower. etc. [progressive]
    And in addition. :: Jane has been watching a flower. [present perfect, progressive]
    (Why "present perfect, progressive"? There is this kind of expression:
    ジェインは、五時間前から、花を見てる Jein wa go-jikan mae kara, hana wo miteru :: Jane has been watching a flower for 5 hours (since 5 hours ago).
    神は、ジェインが子供の頃から、十年間、彼女を見てる :: The god has been watching Jane for ten years since she was a child.
    In this case, "The god is watching Jane for 10 years since she was a child" is strange.

    (Well. Do not say, for god, there is no time. god is in present. god is in the Aeon. In all the time.)

    ------------------
    thus:

    Miru :: [present] and [future] tense
    Mieru :: /Neutral mode/ or /possibility/
    Miteru :: [present progressive] and [present perfect, progressive] tense and mode
