    I've heard thag watch also means care, like " Watch the flowers whilst you are playing football" Do See and Look have other meanings either?

    @David They would have different meanings if they are connected to prepositions. In this case, they are called phrasal verbs. For example: Look up means to search for. See out means to continue to work at something until it's completed.
