EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Old French reprise, from reprendre.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ɹɪˈpɹiːz/, /ɹɪˈpɹaɪz/
  • Rhymes: -aɪz
  • The music and fencing meanings are pronounced /ɹɪˈpɹiːz/, reflecting its French origins; the everyday meaning of a recurrence of an action is often pronounced /ɹɪˈpɹaɪz/, by similarity to words like rise and prise.
