: pedagogical \ped-uh-GAH-jih-kul\ adjective

“Pedagogical,” which has the somewhat less common spelling variant “pedagogic,” was coined in the early 17th century from a Greek adjective of the same meaning. That adjective, “paidagōgikos,” in turn derives from the noun “paidagōgos,” meaning “teacher.” The English word “pedagogue” (which can simply mean “teacher” but usually suggests one who is particularly dull) derives from the same root. Though the words “educational” and “teacher” make the grade in most contexts, “pedagogical” and “pedagogue” are useful additions to the class.
