Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *wer- ‎(to note, sense) (ὁράω < ϝοράω). Cognate with Ancient Greek οὖρος ‎(oûros, watcher, guardian), ὤρα ‎(ṓra, care, concern), Latin vereor ‎(fear) and English aware ‎(vigilant, conscious) and wary ‎(cautious of danger).

Pronunciation[edit]

 

Verb[edit]

ὁράω ‎(horáō)

  1. I see, look
  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.
