in Archi (Nakh-Daghestanian), kor (the imperfective of kos 'hear') means "yes, agree, understand, will do" - but only in the "first person" (quotes here because Archi verbs do not agree in person), i.e. when I say to somebody "kor" it means roughly "yes".
but "tuw kor" (he hear.IPF) means "he hears" and nothing else
Russian verb slushat'sja 'obey'  is (historically) a reflexive of slushat' 'hear, listen to' (imperfective)
