Dear Nino,

Another example would be Ancient Egyptian, with the verb sDm 'to hear.' In
Biblical Hebrew, one finds 'hear' for 'understand' (e.g. Gen 11:7; 41:15,
42:3). In the case of Hebrew, it seems to be limited to understanding a
language or in one case, a dream, and the examples appear to be few.
