English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. register

    History is a systematic record of past events. Annals and chronicles relate events with little regard to their relative importance, and with complete subserviency to their succession in time. Annals are yearly records; chronicles follow the order of time. Both necessarily lack emphasis, selection, and perspective. Archives are public records, which may be annals, or chronicles, or deeds of property, etc. Memoirs generally record the lives of individuals or facts pertaining to individual lives. A biography is distinctively a written account of one person's life and actions; an autobiography is a biography written by the person whose life it records. Annals, archives, chronicles, biographies, and memoirs and other records furnish the materials of history. History recounts events with careful attention to their importance, their mutual relations, their causes and consequences, selecting and grouping events on the ground of interest or importance. History is usually applied to such an account of events affecting communities and nations, tho sometimes we speak of the history of a single eminent life. Compare RECORD.

How to use register in a sentence?

  1. Eduardo Ramos:

    Employers are worried ... because there's no register for undocumented migrants to see if they've got criminal records in their homelands, if they're members of the Mara Salvatrucha or some other gang.

  2. Francis Mwijukye:

    Uganda's constitution talks about a free and fair election. Anything less would be illegal, our position is that unless we have an independently constituted electoral commission and a new voters' register, we won't allow an illegal election to take place.

  3. Webber Hudson:

    The numbers coming through the cash register have been impressive and we're hoping for continued growth.

  4. Pearson Cross:

    This election has not been about Bill Cassidy, this election has been about the negative press that the President has gotten and the ability of Bill Cassidy to tie Barack Obama and( Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid to Mary Landrieu. In this final act Saturday, the Louisiana race will test the limits of the vaunted Mary Landrieu turnout operation, particularly in Orleans Parish, which has been the family stronghold for generations. After Hurricane Katrina, Mary Landrieu operatives were vigilant about maintaining their voter data — scrubbing their voter files to make sure addresses and phone numbers were up to date after each purge of voters who had moved out of state by the Secretary of State's office. Landrieu's campaign also partnered with the Democratic Party to register scores of new voters across the state this year, focusing particularly on ushering new black voters into the party. In Saturday's election, it is hard to underestimate the importance of Landrieu's turnout operation in Orleans Parish, which encompasses the city of New Orleans.

  5. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban:

    All of them would like to go to Germany; our job is only to register them.
