Synonyms of generic in English:
2 generic drugs are cheaper than brand-name ones
unbranded, nonproprietary, no-name
The medically inspired usage of generic is poised to entirely supplant the original meaning of this word, which describes what is characteristic of a class or group of things. But it remains more compelling to use generic to relate to a ‘non-specific feature’ ( the look on his face could best be described as a generic expression of boredom) than to a ‘non-brand-name drug.’Alexandra Horowitz
