Does repartee need an accent with it in writing? Also, what does it mean?
Edit: Can you please provide an example sentence or two? I'd really appreciate it!

Repartee is “conversation marked by a series of witty retorts” (wiktionary).
The word is spelled with no accents. It is apparently from the French repartie (with no accent).
Repartee is always spelled without an accent. It is pronounced re-par-TEE (also, less commonly, re-par-TAY in the US).
