More Information

It follows that "register for" or "sign up for" (an account) would be qI' "sign [a treaty]." So "register for an account" is mab qI'.

Maltz says "sign/log in" is ngaQHa'moH (and "sign out" is ngaQmoH). People say mab ngaQmoH and so on, but this is a special formation, special argot, frozen form. Maltz said he thinks this may have been shortened from an earlier way to say it, something like mab Hung lojmIt ngaQmoH.
