Context: Both Max and his friend Lisa have been told a word by their teacher and their conversation goes as follows:
Max: "What was the word that teacher told us again?"
Lisa: "What? Why weren't you listening?"
Max: "I hate the teacher, so I was zoning out"
Lisa: "Why? Even though you don't like the teacher, listening to her is a rule of conduct!"
Max: "Why are you talking to me about an expression for a general truth or principal?"
Lisa: "Because it is your name, and you should live up to it!"
Max: "Never mind, I'd better ask my mum about this word"
After this conversation, Max immediately knew exactly what word the teacher had said. What word was it?
