I was working with somebody else's source code and find them using the word “disactivate” in the code documentation as follows:
disactivate the minor mode. The persistent action is to show help
I've never encountered this word before and always assumed “deactivate” is the only valid verb to mean the opposite of “activate”.
Apparently, “inactivate” is used as frequently as “deactivate” but mostly in biology, rather than in general contexts. Is “disactivate” a legitimate word? If yes, in which contexts it's used most frequently?
