Hello, Scott and everyone.

This seems like a perfect opportunity for another "newbie" to introduce
herself. I just went from working as an Assistant Registrar at a university
to a new job in technical writing. (Odd switch, I realize!) Have been
lurking in here for a little over a week and figure it's about time I
posted. I have already learned quite a bit and am most grateful to have
found this list.

Now to the question at hand. Considering my background, in my mind the
antonym for "register" is "drop" or "withdraw." "Unregister" sounds somewhat
reasonable; "deregister" doesn't appear to be in my dictionary. It would
help to know the context. What kind of project is it? Can you "unlist" it?
Or would you just "remove" it?

HTH, have a great weekend.

Can anyone suggest an antonym for "register?"
I am thinking of "deregister" or "unregister."
I have to write a help topic to register a project, and unregister a
project (or deregister, etc.).
If you have an opinion, I would like to hear it! Please back your opinion
with your reasoning. I encourage English-speakers outside the United States
to respond since I have an international audience.
Thank you!
