  Set-off \Set"-off`\, n. [Set + off.]
     1. That which is set off against another thing; an offset.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              I do not contemplate such a heroine as a set-off to
              the many sins imputed to me as committed against
              woman.                                --D. Jerrold.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. That which is used to improve the appearance of anything;
        a decoration; an ornament.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. (Law) A counterclaim; a cross debt or demand; a distinct
        claim filed or set up by the defendant against the
        plaintiff's demand.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Set-off differs from recoupment, as the latter
           generally grows out of the same matter or contract with
           the plaintiff's claim, while the former grows out of
           distinct matter, and does not of itself deny the
           justice of the plaintiff's demand. Offset is sometimes
           improperly used for the legal term set-off. See
           {Recoupment}.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     4. (Arch.) Same as {Offset}, n., 4.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     5. (Print.) See {Offset}, 7.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: {Set-off}, {Offset}.
  
     Usage: Offset originally denoted that which branches off or
            projects, as a shoot from a tree, but the term has
            long been used in America in the sense of set-off.
            This use is beginning to obtain in England; though
            Macaulay uses set-off, and so, perhaps, do a majority
            of English writers.
            [1913 Webster]
