Definition of allonge in English:
A slip of paper attached to the end of a document to give room for further endorsements.
- Allonges have had a way of magically appearing in collateral files while trials are in progress.
- Across the country, banks are attaching allonges to original promissory notes, then using the attached allonge to allege their ownership of the note and their standing to foreclose.
- Frankly, no one should ever be using an allonge if there is room for an endorsement on the original note.
Mid 19th century: French, 'lengthening, drawing out'.
