Definition of Clock


  1. A machine for measuring time, indicating the hour and other divisions by means of hands moving on a dial plate. Its works are moved by a weight or a spring, and it is often so constructed as to tell the hour by the stroke of a hammer on a bell. It is not adapted, like the watch, to be carried on the person.
  2. A watch, esp. one that strikes.
  3. The striking of a clock.
  4. A figure or figured work on the ankle or side of a stocking.
  5. To ornament with figured work, as the side of a stocking.
  6. To call, as a hen. See Cluck.
  7. A large beetle, esp. the European dung beetle (Scarabaeus stercorarius).
