English Dictionary: replies by the DICT Development Group

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Reply \Re*ply"\, n.; pl. {Replies} (-pl[?]z"). [See {Reply}, v.
      i., and cf. {Replica}.]
      That which is said, written, or done in answer to what is
      said, written, or done by another; an answer; a response.
      Syn: Answer; rejoinder; response.
      Usage: {Reply}, {Rejoinder}, {Answer}. A reply is a distinct
                  response to a formal question or attack in speech or
                  writing. A rejoinder is a second reply (a reply to a
                  reply) in a protracted discussion or controversy. The
                  word answer is used in two senses, namely (1), in the
                  most general sense of a mere response; as, the answer
                  to a question; or (2), in the sense of a decisive and
                  satisfactory confutation of an adversary's argument,
                  as when we speak of a triumphant answer to the speech
                  or accusations of an opponent. Here the noun
                  corresponds to a frequent use of the verb, as when we
                  say. [bd]This will answer (i.e., fully meet) the end
                  in view;[b8] [bd]It answers the purpose.[b8]
