  A cutter is a ball that moves sharply (cuts) after 
  pitching.  The lateral movement is off  the pitch. 

  Whereas in swing bowling, the ball moves in
  the air before pitching.

  The defination of these terms is based
  strictly on the bowling action used
  (Strictly from the bowler's POV, just
  like the field-settings are strictly from a 
  batsman point  of view) 

  For simplicity's  sake lets number 
  the stumps as shown:

                       -----  
                      |  |  | 
                      |  |  | 
                      |  |  | 
                      |  |  | 
                      3  2  1
