Pre`ex*am"ine (?), v. t. [imp. & p. p. Preexamined (?); p. pr. & vb. n. Preexamining.]
To examine beforehand.
<-- in orig, "perexamined" had no dieresis over the second "e" because it was broken by a hyphen at the end of a line. Thus this transcription is in such cases style of the original rather than typographically identical. Similarly, above at "preengaged" and below, at "preexist" -->
