(pronounced rih-MYU-nuh-rayt)

If you have a hard time pronouncing this word, you are not alone. (The combination of sounds often turns one’s mouth to mush.) This verb means to pay an equivalent for or, going a bit further, to pay an equivalent to for a service, loss, or expense.

Example: Robert’s letter of agreement that he had all of his clients sign clearly spelled out that he was to be remunerated for expenses, fees and costs beyond the original contract price that resulted from the client’s changes to the original plan and scope of work.
