overloading
ad-hoc polymorphism
operator overloading

    (Or "Operator overloading").  Use of a single
   symbol to represent operators with different argument types,
   e.g. "-", used either, as a monadic operator to negate an
   expression, or as a dyadic operator to return the difference
   between two expressions.  Another example is "+" used to add
   either integers or floating-point numbers.  Overloading is
   also known as ad-hoc polymorphism.

   User-defined operator overloading is provided by several
   modern programming languages, e.g. C++'s class system and
   the functional programming language Haskell's type
   classes.

   Ad-hoc polymorphism (better described as overloading) is the
   ability to use the same syntax for objects of different types,
   e.g. "+" for addition of reals and integers or "-" for unary
   negation or diadic subtraction.  Parametric polymorphism
   allows the same object code for a function to handle arguments
   of many types but overloading only reuses syntax and requires
   different code to handle different types.
