previse

(pri-VYZ) Pronunciation Sound Clip RealAudio

verb tr.: To foresee or to forewarn.

[From Latin praevisus, past participle of praevidere (to foresee), from pre- (before) + videre (to see). Ultimately from the Indo-European root weid- (to see) that is the source of words such as wise, view, supervise, and wit.]

"The first four releases ... previse plenty of good times to come."
Catherine Apple Olson; Home video: Children's; Billboard; Jan 18, 1997.
