descry \di-ˈskrī\ transitive verb: 1. to catch sight of {I descried a sail — Jonathan Swift}, 2. find out, discover

Etymology: Middle English descrien to proclaim, reveal, from Anglo-French descrier, alteration of Old French decrier, from de- + crier to cry

I think you’re only allowed to use this word at a renaissance fair.
