From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Re-mark \Re-mark"\ (r?-m?rk"), v. t. [Pref. re- + mark.]
     To mark again, or a second time; to mark anew.
     [1913 Webster]

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Remark \Re*mark"\ (r?-m?rk"), v. t. [imp. & p. p. Remarked
     (-m?rkt"); p. pr. & vb. n. Remarking.] [F. remarquer; pref.
     re- re- + marquer to mark, marque a mark, of German origin,
     akin to E. mark. See Mark, v. & n.]
     1. To mark in a notable manner; to distinquish clearly; to
        make noticeable or conspicuous; to piont out. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
              Thou art a man remarked to taste a mischief. --Ford.
        [1913 Webster]
              His manacles remark him; there he sits. --Milton.
        [1913 Webster]
     2. To take notice of, or to observe, mentally; as, to remark
        the manner of a speaker.
        [1913 Webster]
     3. To express in words or writing, as observed or noticed; to
        state; to say; -- often with a substantive clause; as, he
        remarked that it was time to go.
        [1913 Webster]
     Syn: To observe; notice; heed; regard; note; say.
     Usage: Remark, Observe, Notice. To observe is to keep
            or hold a thing distinctly before the mind. To remark
            is simply to mark or take note of whatever may come
            up. To notice implies still less continuity of
            attention. When we turn from these mental states to
            the expression of them in language, we find the same
            distinction. An observation is properly the result of
            somewhat prolonged thought; a remark is usually
            suggested by some passing occurence; a notice is in
            most cases something cursory and short. This
            distinction is not always maintained as to remark and
            observe, which are often used interchangeably.
            "Observing men may form many judgments by the rules of
            similitude and proportion." --I. Watts. "He can not
            distinguish difficult and noble speculations from
            trifling and vulgar remarks." --Collier. "The thing to
            be regarded, in taking notice of a child's
            miscarriage, is what root it springs from." --Locke.
            [1913 Webster]

              Conjecture and remark, however shrewd. --Cowper.

     2. The expression, in speech or writing, of something
        remarked or noticed; the mention of that which is worthy
