  • A useful search tip: if your dictionary doesn't happen to list a particular short word, look around to see if it might make sense as an abbreviation of a longer word. Conveniently, dictionaries tend to list words in alphabetical order, so e.g. all the words that begin with "rep" will be grouped together. (Or you could just check another dictionary; there are plenty of them online nowadays.) – Ilmari Karonen Dec 26 '18 at 14:57
