Roots

A SCOPE is one's field of vision or "aim," as in Rumanian scop or Italian scopo. The TELESCOPE (see TELEVISION) too is from Indo-European base seqw (to see). The IE base of -SCOPY, SKEPTIC  (see SKEPTIC’) and SCOPE, however, switches the SKP to SPK. Indo-European “root” spek is to observe. The Indo-European “root” sekw (to perceive, see) includes only SEE and SIGHT. Skopein means "to look" in Greek. SHaQaPH is to face, to be seen, or "to look out at" Genesis26:8.  (Hee)SHQeeYPH is to observe or contemplate (source of SPECULATE). The CP of SCOPE is also reversed for PERSPECTIVE, a fair translation of (Ha)SHQaPHaHA (view, observation, outlook, point of view).
