CASH REGISTER (TILL): meaning and examples

Good morning. Today's word is: cash register* It means: the machine in a shop where money is kept. This machine also keeps a record of the sales (ventas) and tells the customer how much money to pay. *Note: The word till is a British English synonym for cash register. Till exists in American English but it has a different meaning --> it refers to the drawer (cajón) of the cash register, where the money is kept. Example 1 Cash registers today are much more sophisticated than in the past. In fact, some of them are like small computers! However, you can sometimes still see the old-fashioned tills in the small, neighbourhood shops that have been in business for decades. Example 2 If you read the sign on top of the cash register (till), you will see that it says "No credit cards or checks accepted." Example 3 They don't keep any large notes (billetes grandes) in the till in case of robbery.
