What prefix means build again?
Beside this, does repeat have a prefix?
Taking the words' etymology, on the other hand, the re- in 'repeat' is also a prefix, as this verb comes from Latin repeto, repetĕre 'to strike again', derived from a simplex peto, petĕre 'to fall, to attack'. Both verbs came to English via Old French, and not directly from Latin.
Secondly, how do you use the prefix re? Rule: Use the hyphen with the prefix re only when re means again AND omitting the hyphen would cause confusion with another word. Example: Will she recover from her illness? Re does not mean again so no hyphen.
Besides, what is the prefix for frequent?
frequent - Prefix -- Un*fre"quent*ly adv.
