English term or phrase: cross-examine
sorry for the dumb question.
What is the correct translation:
interrogar o contrainterrogar?


thanks!
Monica
repreguntar/contrainterrogar
Explanation:
This is taken from the Oxford Superlex, which says:

"cross-examine / "krO:sIg"z&m@n |"krQs- / vt ‹ witness › repreguntar, contrainterrogar* (Chi)". It also partially backed up by the Cabanellas-Hoague which states "cross-examination" as: "repreguntas".

Hope this helps:-)
