A new way of looking at rappeler

I have found it useful to translate rappeler as 'recall'. It's synonymous with remind, but its English language grammar is more similar to rappeler- you recall x to someone , you remind x of someone - and rappeler surely has a root in appeler, to call, re-appeler, recall. Helpful?

Hi Chris,

Yes!  Makes sense to me  --  I use the same logic.
