minding the language

Just mulling over the word 're-engineer'. Something I'm missing? All suggestions gratefully ... etc.

Words are important. Wish more people realised this.

I don't understand what the problem is. Engineering is a particular kind of technical design; 're-engineer' seems no more problematic than 'redesign'. Perhaps it's me who's missing something here.

Sorry Harry,
It's you and it's me. I was being ironic - the context was people. Long story best not gone into. Thanks for stopping by.
