Pronounced: bluhj, verb/noun
Notes: I thought this might have have something to do with hitting another person (nope!)
The word previse means “to forsee” or “to forewarn”
Our word came into English in the mid-1400s
Background / Comments
I thought that most might get this meaning, seeing pre- (before) and vise with looks like it comes from the base of “vision” or “seeing”. That’s mostly right, but the word comes from late Middle English, where is came from the Latin word praevīsus, the past participle of praevidēre (to forsee).
