sig

EnglishEdit

Etymology 1Edit

A shortened form of signature.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

sig (plural sigs)

  1. (informal) A signature, usually when used as a digital signature on emails.
    • 1995, Vince Emery, How to grow your business on the Internet
      Your sig should ideally be four or five lines long, six or seven at the maximum. Since it will be repeated on hundreds of messages, a long signature wastes bandwidth and is therefore rude.
