English → English (gcide) Definition: Amercement Amercement \A*merce"ment\, n. [OF. amerciment.] The infliction of a penalty at the discretion of the court; also, a mulct or penalty thus imposed.

Hence, the act or practice of affeering. [See Affeer.] --Blackstone. [1913 Webster] Note: This word, in old books, is written amerciament.
