Representative getting letters from city pal (7)

I believe the answer is:

typical

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'representative' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'from city pal' is the wordplay.
'from' indicates an anagram (from the letters).
'city'+'pal'='citypal'
'citypal' anagrammed gives 'TYPICAL'.

'getting letters' acts as a link.
This may not be right. Some or all of it may belong to another bit of the clue.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for typical that I've seen before include "Representitive, quintessential" , "Having the essential characteristics of a group" , "Normal" , "Clay pit (anag)" , "Emblematic" .)
