The chat archetype (play /ˈpærədaɪm/) has been acclimated in science to call audible concepts. It comes from Greek "παράδειγμα" (paradeigma), "pattern, example, sample"1 from the verb "παραδείκνυμι" (paradeiknumi), "exhibit, represent, expose"2 and that from "παρά" (para), "beside, beyond"3 + "δείκνυμι" (deiknumi), "to show, to point out".4

The aboriginal Greek appellation παράδειγμα (paradeigma) was acclimated in Greek texts such as Plato's Timaeus (28A) as the archetypal or the arrangement that the Demiurge (god) acclimated to actualize the cosmos. The appellation had a abstruse acceptation in the acreage of grammar: the 1900 Merriam-Webster concordance defines its abstruse use alone in the ambience of grammar or, in rhetoric, as a appellation for an allegorical apologue or fable. In linguistics, Ferdinand de Saussure acclimated archetype to accredit to a chic of elements with similarities.

The chat has appear to accredit actual generally now to a anticipation arrangement in any accurate conduct or added epistemological context. The Merriam-Webster Online concordance defines this acceptance as "a abstract and abstract framework of a accurate academy or conduct aural which theories, laws, and generalizations and the abstracts performed in abutment of them are formulated; broadly: a abstract or abstract framework of any kind."5
