|Assunto:||Care for = look after?|
In a sense, anyone whose safety or well-being you have always or long seen to might as well state that you have always or long "cared for" him or her.
care for = to have a liking, fondness, or taste <never cared for a human creature before --Margaret Deland> <doesn't care for ice cream> : have regard or respect <I cared for what he had to say --Edna S.V.Millay>
[Webster's Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged on CD]
Question: Can one use the PV "care for" and the PV "look after" interchangeably? Where do their senses overlap?
3 : to attend to : take care of : see to the safety or well-being of : TEND <sent to ... look after his interests --G.C.Sellery> <somebody ... who looked after the children --Eden Phillpotts> <I daresay you can look after yourself --Andrew Young>
