  1. X mark

    An x mark is a mark used to indicate the concept of negation as well as affirmation. It is often used opposite the tick or check mark It is also used as a replacement for a signature for a person who is illiterate and thus cannot write his or her name. Typically, the writing of an X used for this purpose must be witnessed to be valid. As a verb, to ex off/out or to cross off/out means to add such a mark. It is quite common, especially on printed forms and document, for there to be squares in which to place x marks, or interchangeably checks. While it is more common in the United States and Germany for people to check a square box with a cross than a tick, in some countries a tick or even a v mark is used. Meanwhile in the United Kingdom, it is increasingly more common for a dot or small circle to be used instead of the traditional x mark. It is also traditionally used on maps to indicate locations, most famously on treasure maps.
