renumerate

(re-NOO-muh-rayt) Pronunciation RealAudio

verb tr.: To recount.

From Latin renumerare (to count over) from re- + numerare (to count), ultimately from Indo-European root nem- (to assign or take) that's also the source for words such as number, numb, astronomy, and nemesis.

"We can renumerate a number of things which are still strong with Central Government," Mr. Brown said.
Mayor Brown Wants Restructuring Delayed; The Daily Gleaner (Kingston, Jamaica); Sep 10, 1986.

X-Bonus

There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world. It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher. -Henry van Dyke, poet (1852-1933)
