    It's from French and should be "résumé" (literally "summarized") but we usually drop the accent marks in English, just as in "cafe" and similar words. Kind of confusing since that is not how we usually pronounce the word "resume."

    Resume (pronounced as res oo may), means summary and is based on the French word résumé (which means recap (recapitulate), basically). As an anglicism (a borrowed word) we do not use the accents because we don't have those accents in English. This is a minor problem because there is the coincidental spelling of resume (CV, summary) with resume (restart, continue doing). Thus, I prefer to say CV (curriculum vitae) for the same thing. Avoids that problem of possible ambiguity.

    The word is spelt like this: résumé. Note the accents over the two e's. If you don't write/type those accents, the word is 'resume', which means to start again. It is pronounced like this: resumay.
