Sanskrit[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂owis, from the root *h₂ew- (to see, perceive), whence also possibly उवे (uvé). Cognates include Ancient Greek αἰσθάνομαι (aisthánomai, to perceive), Hittite 𒌋𒀪𒄭 (u-uḫ-ḫi, I see) and Latin audiō (I hear, listen).

Traditional etymologists connect it to वहिस् (vahis) and अव (ava), or to आविद् (ā-vid).

Adverb[edit]

आविस् (āvís)

  1. before the eyes, openly, manifestly, evidently
