Is the word "repared" Shakespearian english as well?

It should also be noted that yes Shakespeare did give us many words he changed or anglicized them. he never made anything out of thin air. Take the word "Assassin.". He was the first one to use it but by all linguistic standards. He made it english from an older arabic word. You probably know the difference but I just wanted to clarify that for others.
