Hello,
could "type" mean "record"? I've come across a sentence where "type" didn't mean "to write using a typewriter" but "to record" (of a film). Is it another meaning of this verb (my dictionary doesn't confirm it), or is it a mistake in my book?

Thank you.

Hi Magda,
I don't know, it could be a term used only in some fields (for example movie industry). Most dictionaries don't list many technical terms, but you could take a look at www.onelook.com anyway. The problem is that that word could mean everything without a context. You could also try posting the whole sentence that you don't understand here, maybe someone will be able to help you.
Emotion: smile
Could you provide the context?

Sure, here is the sentence:

"I have typed the film and watched it several times."

Hi Kooyeen,
thanks for your link Emotion: smile .
'you sure this is not "I taped the film?"
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
No, it is "typed". I've just checked it in my text book. So, I assume that "tape" is the synonym of "record", and clearly "type" is a typo in my sentence Emotion: smile .
to tape: to make a magnetic recording on special tape (including cassettes)

But look here at 2 (however this is rare): Emotion: smile
