Definition of Check:

  1. Demand draft drawn on a bank against its makers (drawers) funds, to pay the stated amount of money to the bearer or named party, on presentment (demand) on a stated date or after. Whereas in the US a check is always a negotiable instrument, in the UK practice (where check is spelled as cheque) it can be made non-negotiable by crossing (see crossed check).
