Preposition vs. abbreviation[edit]

The use of re as a preposition seems to me very uncommon, but re: and Re: abbreviations of course are everywhere. Should it be listed as an abbreviation separately? Also, as an abbreviation, it is something of an anomaly; it is never re. instead only re: exists in the wild. What's the best way to describe that? --Connel MacKenzie 20:47, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)

It's not an abbreviation. It is the Latin word rē with a colon afterwards. Shii 01:35, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Greek interjection[edit]

Greek interjections do not belong here. Greek interjections should be written in the Greek alphabet. Uncle G 18:11, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
