Etymology of video, vision, visit

Posted by Johannes on 11 August 2013

The word video comes from the Latin video (I see), which is related to the Greek verb ideo[to see; Gr: ιδέω, είδον; ε-Fιδ-ον]].

From the same root: vision, visible, visit, idea

In modern Greek:
a) ida: I saw  [Gr: είδα]
b) idea: idea [Gr: ιδέα]
c) video: video (loanword) [Gr: βίντεο]
