Odd Amy-isms

Amy’s observations about how something looks sound a bit odd—she’ll say things such as „Sieht so wie aus ein Turm!“ and „Witzig aus!“. (Proper German would be „Sieht (so) aus wie ein Turm!“ and „Sieht witzig aus!“, respectively, I’d say.)

I’ve no idea how she analyses the construction aussehen wie X. I don’t think it’s influence from English this time, though.
