WHAT DOES SIGNATURE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

signature

Signature

A signature is a handwritten depiction of someone's name, nickname, or even a simple "X" or other mark that a person writes on documents as a proof of identity and intent. The writer of a signature is a signatory or signer. Similar to a handwritten signature, a signature work describes the work as readily identifying its creator. A signature may be confused with an autograph, which is chiefly an artistic signature. This can lead to confusion when people have both an autograph and signature and as such some people in the public eye keep their signatures private whilst fully publishing their autograph.

Definition of signature in the English dictionary

The first definition of signature in the dictionary is the name of a person or a mark or sign representing his name, marked by himself or by an authorized deputy. Other definition of signature is the act of signing one's name. Signature is also a distinctive mark, characteristic, etc, that identifies a person or thing.
