V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: to say, state, or perform again, sometimes with a wearying effect

Synonyms: repeat, restate, recapitulate, rephrase, rehash


Tips: When a speaker begins a sentence with, "To reiterate…," then repeats what he said previously, it is to let the audience know that he is aware he is repeating himself and to stress importance of a topic.

Usage Examples:

You must reiterate the rules to the children or they will surely forget them. (repeat, restate)

"To reiterate," the principal stated sternly to the high school assembly, "tardiness will not be tolerated." (repeat, restate)
