Sorry, I had not seen your post earlier. It is hard to imagine why you would be asking this question without giving any further explanation of your query.
I've provided a dictionary link to the term for you, although as this is easy enough for anyone to do, I suspect you might be seeking to ensue some sort of disscussion. I'm game if you will supply more info, although I can't promise that ultimately I can supply the complete answer for you. :-)
Happy New Year!!!
PS. Curezone has a Debate forum on Dogma as well, although I warn you, it has been dead wood for a very loooong time!
