    The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex. (victims of racial discrimination)
    Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another. (discrimination between right and wrong)
    The selection of a signal having a required characteristic, such as frequency or amplitude, by means of a discriminator that rejects all unwanted signals.
