repetition

repetition
repeat, repetition
The modern use of repeat in broadcasting, meaning ‘a radio or television programme that has been transmitted before’, with its attributive use as in repeat showing, repeat fee, etc., has tended to put repetition in the shade even in the meaning ‘the act of repeating’ (as distinct from ‘a thing repeated’), which is the meaning historically more closely associated with repetition than with repeat:

• Rare sturgeon valued at £670 were stolen from Syon Park last weekend, in a repeat of robberies committed last year —Croydon Guardian, 2003.

Repeat is also common in attributive position in medical contexts, with the meaning ‘further or repeated’:

• Strangely, it was decided that a repeat investigation was not required and I was allowed to go on caring for the patient throughout her stay —A. Morton-Cooper, 1990.
