...as in join a club. I would use metricular, but it seems fancy. Dictionaries say liar, but that seem wrong. What is the correct term?

That's good info David. I thought dar de alta was a term restricted to being discharged as discharged from a hospital.

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure it can be used both ways.

AngelicaDeAlquezar is on a distinguished road
"Darse de alta" means to sign up, and it's an action you do yourself.
And "dar de alta" means to discharge someone from a hospital, because they're better. Someone else (a doctor) does it for you.


- Me di de alta ayer. -->I signed up yesterday.
- Me dieron de alta ayer. -->I was discharged from hospital (by them).
