Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Vice"

The meaning of "Vice" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does "siphon" , "vice versa" , "surveillance" , "provided", "endeavor" mean?
A: "Siphon" is not really used in daily conversation and is usually for more formal/professional contexts. "He siphoned the water from one tub to the other." In normal conversation, it is more natural to simply say, "He moved the water from one tub to the other."

"Vice versa" is pretty commonly used. "I like him and vice versa" = "I like him and he likes me". It is definitely an important word to know.

Surveillance is also common since it doesn't have a common synonym. "If you try to steal something, the surveillance cameras will catch you." "The police have him under surveillance." If the situation is not very serious, you can simply say something like "to keep an eye on." "Keep an eye on the traffic light in case it changes color." "I want to know where John goes after lunch every day, so I'm going to keep an eye on him."

Provided is also common with both of its meanings but has a slightly formal meaning. "I didn't have an umbrella so he provided me with one." "I'm going to go to the amusement park, provided that it isn't closed."

Endeavor isn't very common but you can still hear/see it in daily life and also has a slightly formal meaning. "Learning a language is a long endeavor."
Q: What does vice versa mean?
A: The other way around or reverse of what you said
Q: What does vice versa mean?

Q: What does vice versa mean?

Q: What does vice versa mean?
A: As wrote. "I help her, and vice versa" means "I help her, and she helps me." It means "and the same is true in the other direction" (between the two people or things named), or "and the same is true with the two people's/thing's positions reversed." My dictionary says "反之也一样". It's almost always "_and_ vice versa" or "_or_ vice versa"; I don't think I've ever heard or seen it without a preceding "and" or "or," although maybe I could imagine it with a "maybe" or an "also." It has to come after a statement; it doesn't stand on its own. One wouldn't say "The vice-versa is true, too." One would say "The converse is true, too."
