v случаться, происходить (1). Глагол to occur употребляется при описании событий, которые заранее не задумывались и не планировались:

It occured to me that… — Мне вдруг пришло в голову, что…

It never occured to me — Мне это никогда не приходило в голову (Я об этом никогда не думал).

Глагол to occur — в значительной степени слово книжное и в разговорной, повседневной речи предпочтительнее глаголы to take place и to happen. Для описания конкретных действий или действий, которые заранее планировались, употребляется глагол to take place:

The first meeting took place a week ago — Первая встреча прошла неделю тому назад.

Several accidents took place here last week — На прошлой неделе здесь произошло несколько аварий.

Глагол to happen, как правило, используется при неконкретных подлежащих, часто выраженных местоимениями it, something, nothing, anything. Когда речь идет о чем-либо происходящем с людьми, то употребляется глагол to happen:

It happened to me when I was in Spain — Это случилось со мной, когда я был в Испании.
