transitive verb 1. : to submit to or be forced to endure the infliction, imposition, or penalty of : bear as a victim
suffer a year's imprisonment
Do I see correctly that "bear as a victim" means "bear something as a victim", where something means martyrdom and year's imprisonment ?
Just to be sure I understand correctly - "bear" in "bear as a victim" is a transitive verb that requires a direct object and this phrase should be read as "bear (something) as a victim", am I right? (that's what I meant)
