    Re: back or aback

    The part of speech is important here.

    aback (adv) click here

    back (adv/n/adj/v) ... For back as an adverb, click here

    You can search Longman for the rest.

    Notice that ashamed is (adj) shame is (n)
    ashame never exists in English dictionaries

    Good luck
