 for Re-
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Re \Re\ (r[=a]). [It.] (Mus.)
     A syllable applied in solmization to the second tone of the
     diatonic scale of C; in the American system, to the second
     tone of any diatonic scale.
     [1913 Webster]

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Re- \Re-\ (r[=e]-). [L. re-, older form (retained before vowels)
     red-: cf. F. re-, r['e]-.]
     A prefix signifying back, against, again, anew; as, recline,
     to lean back; recall, to call back; recede; remove; reclaim,
     to call out against; repugn, to fight against; recognition, a
     knowing again; rejoin, to join again; reiterate; reassure.
     Combinations containing the prefix re- are readily formed,
     and are for the most part of obvious signification.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: With the increase of electronic connunications, in
           which the vowels with a diaeresis (e.g. ["e]) are
           seldom used in contrast with printed materials, some
           words with re followed by a vowel are now spelled with
           a hyphen to indicate that the two vowels are to be
           pronounced as two syllables rather than as one
           syllable, as in re-emerge rather than re["e]merge. The
           unbroken forms (e.g. reemerge) are, however, usually
           more commonly used, and the pronunciation with two
           syllables for the two vowels is taken as understood.
           [PJC]
