Jump to: navigation, search

From the entry:

  1. A formal recording of names, events, transactions etc.
  2. A book of such entries.
  3. An entry in such a book.

Does this sound redundant to anyone else? Isn't definition #1 the same as #3? —This comment was unsigned.

Not at all. One and two seem almost redundant to me, split out to make the distinction between a paper register and an electoronic one, perhaps. --Connel MacKenzie 20:04, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Could somebody state the antonym to the verb "to register"?[edit]

I believed for a long time that the antonym of register is deregister. However, equally many sources seem to state unregister as the antonym. What is correct? Please help a non-native English speaker. Bernburgerin 10:02, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Both seem OK to me. They both seem current and mostly seem to be used in the same way. DCDuring TALK 11:47, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
