Collocation with "videti" in Serbian

While there are so many useful tools to check your spelling / grammar / vocabulary / idioms / pronunciation ... for the English language, there are just a few such tools for Serbian (I listed them in the sidebar to the right and I (ir)regularly send them to all the Serbian Activator subscribers).

One of the most useful things a student need, starting from the pre-intermediate level is to know verb collocations. That's why I'll try to connect the verbs and nouns from the previous posts and write a list of the most common collocations for the verb "to see" (videti):




  • Verbs and phrases commonly used after "to see"
  1. vidim kako ... (np. vidi kako se to radi)
  2. vidimo se ponovo
  3. vidi taj izraz
  4. vidi da li ima ... (np. vidi da li ima hleba)
  5. vidi šta ... (np. vidi šta nam treba)
  6. vidi kako mi stoji (for example when you're trying sth. on, this phrase means "look how / if it suits=fits me" )
  • Words before "to see"
  1. mogu videti / da vidim
  2. samo vidi
  3. želim da vidim
  4. volim da vidim
  5. dođi da vidiš
  6. zapanjio bi se da vidiš...
  7. drago mi je da vas vidim
  • Adverbs collocated with "to see"
  1. + (ne)jasno (if a + is before the word, it means that the verb "videti" comes before that word. For example : videti + (ne)jasno = + (ne)jasno)
  2. jedva + 
  3. odjednom + (commonly in the past tense: odjednom sam video)
  4. tačno + 
  5. + kristalno-jasno
  6. slabo +
Do you have any other ideas which "videti" collocations are worth adding to the list ?

Marina has been a fantastic teacher. She has taken me from knowing absolutely no Serbian and brought me to a level where I am excited to live and thrive in a country where they speak Serbian. I have recommended her and will continue to pass her name along for other students who are interested in learning. I look forward to continuing to keep in touch with her. Katie, USA, 2014
I have been working with Marina twice a week through Udemy since late August and LOVE her and all of her videos and classroom work through Udemy. It is so helpful to be able to log in at any time during the day or night and listen and watch her videos. She breaks each lesson down very well and makes it simple to learn and to interact and practice on my own before our classtime. I will highly recommend Marina to other friends as well as Udemy!
