  2. I behold, perceive
  3. I experience, witness
  4. I pay attention to, see to
  5. I seem (Middle Passive)

Inflection[edit]

Along with a few others (λαβέ (labé), ἐλθέ (elthé), εὑρέ (heuré), εἰπέ (eipé)), the aorist imperative has an irregular accent: ἰδέ (idé) and not **ἴδε. This is not the case in compounds, however.
