Paradigm (Noun)

Pronunciation: ['pæ-rê-dIm]

Definition 1: An example that serves as an archetype or model, or the model itself (see definition 2).
Definition 2: The guiding philosophy of a discipline from which theories, experiments, and teaching practices are derived.
Suggested usage: Any ideal may be called a paradigm, especially if it calls for action: "My mother has a paradigm for housework and that requires the active participation of the whole family."
Etymology: From Greek paradeigma "pattern, model" from paradeiknunai "to compare": para- "alongside" + deiknunai "to show, display, exhibit." The underlying root, *deik-/*deig- also evolved into English "teach" and "token" and turns up in Latin as digit "finger" (originally meaning "pointer") and dic- "speak, say" of English "dictate" and "DICtionary!"
