The answer is

AGAIN

I will repeat,

This is a clue to the whole word. When you repeat something, you do it again.

Split 1+2 for your benefit.

If you split the word between letters 1 and 2, you get a gain, which is for your benefit.

Detach the 2 latter
General in, Turkey

Remove the last 2 letters and you get aga, which is a title for a general in Turkey.

Now start anew, I will repeat

Again, the word is again.

  • $\begingroup$ Aga is not general in Turkey -.- Aga means landlord especially for the rural places. By the way, I am Turkish. $\endgroup$ – Oray Jan 23 '16 at 12:59
  • $\begingroup$ Correct! Nice explanation too! Just wondering... Did you have to look up 'aga' or did you already know it? $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Jan 23 '16 at 12:59

  • $\begingroup$ @JoeBeastlyGerbil I had to look it up. That's where I started, then the rest fell into place. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 23 '16 at 13:01
  • $\begingroup$ @Oray I just looked it up online. It's a popular crossword clue, whether accurate or not. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 23 '16 at 13:02
