pagetheoracle Posted December 8, 2014 Report Share Posted December 8, 2014 If somebody shouts "Hey you!" everybody in the vicinity turns to look at who is doing the shouting and who at. Even when they are more specific, the same thing occurs to a lesser degree "Hey Tom!" If you're name is Tom, you'll turn to look, to see if it is specifically you they mean and not some other Tom, who might be close by. It's also like grabbing someone's arm to catch their attention or waving an arm in the air. All this plus 'catching someone's eye,' to start a conversation, seeing 'eye to eye' and averting your 'eyes,'to avoid speaking to someone, indicates how accurate sight is in this context and verbal expression isn't.
