Get ready because WordsRated’s 5-letter words starting with RE come in droves. And that’s not an exaggeration—this astonishing list is a realm chockful of such words, including those referring to actions to be repeated (thanks in large part to the re- prefix)!
If we’re talking numbers, this exhaustive selection of RE-beginning, 5-letter words amount to 187 in the English language.
Also, for a quick reference, the highest pointers on this list are the words “refix,” “rewax,” and “remix.”
Some things are meant to be repeated
It’s no secret that most words making up this list are do-over words, and the prefix re- is the one responsible. The said prefix, after all, indicates repetition or to do something again.
The most common examples are “retry,” “renew,” and “reset.” Such terms are straightforward enough to define.
There are some exceptions, of course, where the rule doesn’t apply in a one-to-one sense. For instance, “recap” is not commonly defined as “to cap something again,” but ”to state again as a summary.” Another is “rerun,” which usually means “a re-airing of a past TV show or program” and not “to run again.”
