Is Re a word? Re meaning

RE

Most people think "re" isn’t a word, but that’s why it’s so fun to say. It actually has multiple meanings. It’s pronounced like "ray" or "ree," depending on the usage and the speaker’s preference.

First, "re" is a prefix that means to do something again or revert something. For example, "reload" means "to load again," and "repeat" means "to say again." (Don’t ask; it’s French.)

On its own, "re" just means "in regard to" or "regarding". You’ve probably seen it in an email because that’s where it’s used most often. However, when used in an email message, users typically only use "re" when they’re referring back to a message that was already sent. For this reason, most people think it means "reply." There’s actually quite a bit of debate about the topic, and there’s no authority to resolve the dispute. Regardless, "re" is a word that means "in regard to." You’re welcome to think of it next time you send an email. Or not. The choice is yours.

"Re" is also the second note on the major scale. It’s used most frequently in a song from The Sound of Music and within choir rehearsals across the nation.

Examples of "re" in a sentence:

  • "Sing it with me: Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do!"
  • "I meant to get back to you re the head lice, but I was busy checking for nits."
  • "Johnny spoke to HR re your complaint, and they're not happy."
