In our engineering meeting this morning the subject of using a word came up.
The word is re-notification, people are suggesting that we use
renotification instead. I asked what set of rules they were using to make
this decision and one of the engineers quipped of "Why don't you go look in
the dictionary."

Before I go went and did something stupid, like prove him wrong, I looked in
several online dictionaries, renotification was nowhere to be seen.

What is the best way to approach this without any loss of face on either
