    Re: write down

    "Write down" and "write out" have the same basic meaning - to actually inscribe or write on some type of medium, whether it be a piece of paper or a chalkboard.

    "Write up" usually implies that a person has committed some sort of infraction and that it will be noted in writing and included in his file or reported to authorities.
