Looking, noticing, observing. Videre, animadvertere, observare. Ὁρᾶν, καθορᾶν, παρατηρεῖν.

Look at me. Converte ora et oculos in me (ad me). Ἐμοὶ ἀντίβλεπε.

Look what are you doing. Vide quid agas. Σκόπει τί πράττεις.

Be careful and don’t ruin anything. Vide ne quid imprudens ruas. Σκόπει μή τι καταβάλλῃς.

Look at your audience. Admove vultum ad auditores. Ἀπόβλεπε εἰς τοὺς ἀκούστας.

Look how he walks. Vide ut incedit. Ὅρα ὥσπερ βαδίζει.

Don’t you realize? Ecquid non animadvertis? Ἦτι οὐ καθορᾷς;

I hadn’t noticed that. Id non observaveram. Hoc me pratervolavit. Hoc non observavi. Τοῦτο οὐ παρετετηρήκειν (< παρατηρέω). Τοῦτό με λέληθε.

What happens? What’s going on? Quid agitur? Τί πράττεται;

This is hazy, unclear to me. Mihi enim tenebrae sunt. Πρὸς γὰρ ταῦτα ἀμβλυώττω.

I’ll put it before your eyes. Rem subjiciam oculis vestris. Ponam vobis ad oculos. In conspectu vestro collocabo. Τὸ πρᾶγμα ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς (ἐν ὄψει, πρὸ ὀφθαλμῶν) θήσω.

Bring (show) him to us. Exhibe illum nobis. Δήλου αὐτὸν ὑμῖν.

Do my father suspect anything? Numquid patri subolet? Οὐδενὸς ὁ πατὴρ ὑπαισθάνεται;

He is clearsighted, he has a sharp understanding. Oculos habet acutos. Ὀξεῖς ἔχει τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς.

He is looking at us out of the corner of his eye. Perversis (malis, obliquis, torvis) oculis nos intuetur. Ἡμᾶς πλαγίαις (δριμείαις) ὄψεσι παραβλέπει.

The pupils never take their eyes off of their teacher. In vultu praeceptoris habitant discipulorum oculi. Ἀτενὲς ἀφορῶσιν οἱ μαθηταὶ εἰς τὸν διδάσκαλον.

I have never been able to detect their traps (tricks). Illorum fallacias numquam praesensi. Τὰς τέχνας καὶ τὰς πανουργίας τούτων οὐδέποτε ἐμφανεῖς καταστῆσαι ἠδυνήθην.
Hominibus totam versandam constat esse bibliothecam, ut solam utilem scribere sententiam possint.
