Hm, how about this:

 generic function - a <function> whose behavior depends on the <classes>
   or <identities> of the arguments supplied to it.  Unlike an ordinary
   <function>, a <generic function> is also an <object> whose parts include,
   among other things, a set of <methods>, a <lambda list>, and a method
   combination type.
