Which See

q.v.

From the Latin quod, the neuter of quī (“what”) + vidē the imperative mood of videō (“I see”). Literally meaning “which see”.
From Wiktionary.org.

Q.v. is one of those things which I can never remember the meaning. I’ve always gotten the gist from context, but no matter how many times I look it up, the knowledge that the Latin words mean “which see” never sticks.

And so I write this entry, hoping the act of doing so helps me remember.
