Etymology[edit]

  • From Latin reducere (to bring back).
  • The word may have entered popular usage in the United States with the 1971 publication of the novel Rabbit Redux by John Updike,[1] although it had previously been used in medicine, literary titles, and product names.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

redux (not comparable)

  1. (of a topic) Redone, restored, brought back, or revisited.
    Company policy redux.

    • 2004, Robert A. Levy, Shakedown: How Corporations, Government, and Trial Lawyers Abuse the Judicial Process, page 265:
      10. It's Microsoft Redux All Over Again. Maybe the fat lady hasn't crooned the final note, but the petite lady who carried the most weight, US District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, wrote the denouement to the Microsoft antitrust fiasco.

Usage notes[edit]

Redux is always used attributively and after the noun rather than before it.
