We provide a generic categorical setting for Miller’s pattern unification. The syntax with metavariables is generated by a free monad applied to finite coproducts of representable functors; the most general unifier is computed as a coequaliser in the Kleisli category restricted to such coproducts. Our setting handles simply-typed second-order syntax, linear syntax, or (intrinsic) polymorphic syntax such as system F.
