4 linking verb to seem; to appear
+noun: That looks an interesting book.You made me look a complete fool! (OALD)
For linking verb, look, can have NP complements (OALD,#4), I thought '[A] what does she look like?’ can be altered into '[B] what does she look?’ without meaning change. But I can’t find any cases of that in COCA. Looking up the expressions in the web site, I get the feeling that when we just say without the preposition ‘like’, it would give the ambiguousness of whether it could be interpreted as seeing, seeking, or seeming etc. Can’t we ever use [B] expression at all?
