वि  m. 1.m. (nom.वि॑स् or वे॑स्acc.वि॑म्gen.abl.वे॑स्; pl.nom.acc.व॑यस् [acc. वीन्, [Bhaṭṭ.]]; वि॑भिस्, वि॑भ्यस्, वीना॑म्) a bird (also applied to horses, arrows, and the मरुत्s), [RV.]; [VS.]; [PañcavBr,] (also occurring in later language).
वि   [cf.1.व॑यस्; Gk.οἰωνός for ὀϝιωνος; Lat.a-vis; accord. to some Germ.Ei; Angl.Sax.aég; Eng.egg.]
वि  n. 2.n. an artificial word said to be = अन्न, [ŚBr.]
वि  n. 3.ind. (prob. for an original द्वि, meaning ‘in two parts’; and opp. to सम्q.v.) apart, asunder, in different directions, to and fro, about, away, away from, off, without, [RV.] &c. &c. In, [RV.] it appears also as a prep. with acc. denoting ‘through’ or ‘between’ (with ellipse of the verb, e.g. i, 181, 5; x, 86, 20 &c.) It is esp. used as a prefix to verbs or nouns and other parts of speech derived from verbs, to express ‘division’, ‘distinction’, ‘distribution’, ‘arrangement’, ‘order’, ‘opposition’, or ‘deliberation’ (cf.वि-√ भिद्, -शिष्, -धा, -रुध्, -चर्, with their nominal derivatives)
क्री   sometimes it gives a meaning opposite to the idea contained in the simple root (e.g. √ , ‘to buy’; वि-√ क्री, ‘to sell’), or it intensifies that idea (e.g.हिंस्, ‘to injure’; वि-√ हिंस्, ‘to injure severely’). The above 3. वि॑ may also be used in forming compounds not immediately referable to verbs, in which cases it may express ‘difference’ (cf.1.वि-लक्षण), ‘change’ or ‘variety’ (cf.वि-चित्र), ‘intensity’ (cf.वि-कराल), ‘manifoldness’ (cf.वि-विध), ‘contrariety’ (cf.वि-लोम), ‘deviation from right’ (cf.वि-शील), ‘negation’ or ‘privation’ (cf.वि-कच्छ, being often used like 3. , निर्, and निस् [qq. vv.], and like the Lat.dis, se, and the English a, dis, in, un &c.)
वि-जामि   in some cases it does not seem to modify the meaning of the simple word at all (cf., वि-जामातृ)
See also: वि - जामि
वि-कोक   it is also used to form proper names out of other proper names (e.g., वि-पृथु, वि-विंश). To save space such words are here mostly collected under one article
See also: वि - कोक
but words having several subordinate compounds will be found s.v.

वि [vi]   ind.
As a prefix to verbs and nouns it expresses: (a) separation, disjunction (apart, asunder, away, off &c.), as वियुज्, विहृ, विचल् &c.; (b) the reverse of an action; as क्री 'to buy'; विक्री, 'to sell'; स्मृ 'to remember'; विस्मृ 'to forget'; (c) division; as विभज्, विभाग; (d) distinction; as विशिष्, विशेष, विविच्, विवेक; (e) discrimination; व्यवच्छेद (f) order, arrangement; as विधा, विरच्; (g) opposition; as विरुध्, विरोध; (h) privation; as विनी, विनयन; (i) deliberation, as विचर्, विचार; (j) intensity; विध्वंस.
As a prefix to nouns or adjectives not immediately connected with roots, वि expresses (a) negation or privation, in which case it is used much in the same way as अ or निर्,i. e. it forms Bah. comp.; विधवा, व्यसुः &c.; (b) intensity, greatness; as विकराल; (c) variety, as विचित्र; (d) difference; as विलक्षण; (e) manifoldness, as विविध; (f) contrariety, opposition, as विलोम; (g) change, as विकार; (h) impropriety, as विजन्मन्.
