As with any word test, deconstructing root words from prefixes and suffixes will help tremendously. The prefix "ex-" usually means "not," "out" or "through." "Re-" typically repeats the root word. For example, "repeat" means to "say something again." "Re-" literally means "back" and "peat" is taken from the Latin, "petere," which means "seek." Technically, the person receiving a repeated expression is ultimately "seeking" to hear it said "back."
