    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.
