「聞こえる」の情報

()こえる is a verb that is often used to describe things that can be heard, or the way in which something is heard. Because of this, the most common translations of this verb are 'to be audible', or 'to sound like (A)'. ()こえる is an intransitive verb, and literally means 'to give off sound'.
When using ()こえる, (A) will always be followed by . (A) is considered to be the 'source' of the sound (a noun). However, the 'way that something sounds' will be marked adverbially. This means that an い-Adjective will be changed to its く form, and な-Adjectives/nouns will be followed by .

Fun Fact
The primary difference between ()こえる, and ()ける (the potential form of ()く), is that ()こえる is used to identify things that do not require the active concentration of the listener to be heard. In other words, ambient noise. However, ()ける is used when the speaker is trying to concentrate on some specific sound, and refers to their 'ability' to hear it.

    The grammar page says “Noun + が + 聞こえる”, but “今のノック____た?” dinged me for “が 聞こえ”. It just wanted “今のノック聞きこえた” Can someone help me wrap my brain around this one? I assumed ノック is a noun.

    I’m wondering about this as well. Doesn’t make any sense.

    Hey @rexd !

    ノック is a noun, so we have added がきこえた as an accepted answer.

    Although が should be used there, when 聞こえた is simply used as ‘hear’ in a casual conversation, it can be omitted.
