View goes back to Latin videre ‘to see’. Review (Late Middle English), first recorded as a noun denoting a formal inspection of military or naval forces, is literally a re-viewing. Video [1930s] is the Latin for ‘I see’ just as audio is the Latin for ‘I hear’. Visa (mid 19th century), evidence that your right to enter a country has been checked, is a shortening of Latin charta visa literally ‘seen paper’.
