CIDE DICTIONARY

parn. 
     See Parr.  [1913 Webster]
parprep. [F., fr. L. per. See Per.].
     By; with; -- used frequently in Early English in phrases taken from the French, being sometimes written as a part of the word which it governs; as, par amour, or paramour; par cas, or parcase; par fay, or parfay.  [1913 Webster]

  •  The number of strokes required for a hole or a round played without mistake, two strokes being allowed on each hole for putting. Par represents perfect play, whereas bogey makes allowance on some holes for human frailty. Thus if par for a course is 75, bogey is usually put down, arbitrarily, as 81 or 82. If par for one hole is 5, a bogey is 6, and a score of 7 strokes would be a double bogey.  [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
At par, at the original price; neither at a discount nor at a premium; -- used especially of financial instruments, such as bonds. -- Above par, at a premium. -- Below par, (a) at a discount. (a) less than the expected or usual quality; -- of the quality of objects and of the performance of people; as, he performed below par in the game. -- On a par, on a level; in the same condition, circumstances, position, rank, etc.; as, their pretensions are on a par; his ability is on a par with his ambition. -- Par of exchange. See under Exchange. -- Par value, nominal value; face value; -- used especially of financial instruments, such as bonds.
