zhěng - exactly; whole; orderly; repair; make sb suffer

A man came to finally fix the phone line today. Turned out that the socket had got too damp. I've already had the word 修理, so I picked 整, which has many meanings, all generally involving making things complete and orderly. Also to punish someone, which seems a bit odd, unless you're punishing someone in order to redress an imbalance.
