However, I won't understand what you mean unless I remember this

I would much prefer "de-duplicate".

Of course, I would also much prefer "uniquify".

If a little French and Latin gets into this melange we call English, it'll
just have to fend for itself.

languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets
for new vocabulary." - James Nicoll
