Pter:Is it correct to use resent when you mean re-sent?
I can't find the word resend in Oxford Advanced Learner, Cambridge Advanced Learner, Collins Cobuild, Longman and Macmillan, though I can find it in Merriam-Webster and OED.

PterIs it correct to use resent when you mean re-sent?Not in my opinion. I once actually got an e-mail from a co-worker that began, "I resent your message", and let me tell you, my blood started to boil before I realized (after reading further) what he had meant.
Anonymous:Could try other ones such as resubmitted (Adj) / revised (Adj) paper, or resubmit (V) / revise (V) instead?
