  Vernier \Ver"ni*er\, n. [So named after the inventor, Pierre
     Vernier.]
     A short scale made to slide along the divisions of a
     graduated instrument, as the limb of a sextant, or the scale
     of a barometer, for indicating parts of divisions. It is so
     graduated that a certain convenient number of its divisions
     are just equal to a certain number, either one less or one
     more, of the divisions of the instrument, so that parts of a
     division are determined by observing what line on the vernier
     coincides with a line on the instrument.
     [1913 Webster]
