  arg  /arg/  n.  Abbreviation  for  `argument'  (to  a  function),  used 
  so  often  as  to  have  become  a  new  word  (like  `piano'  from  `pianoforte'). 
  "The  sine  function  takes  1  arg,  but  the  arc-tangent  function  can  take 
  either  1  or  2  args."  Compare  {param},  {parm},  {var}.
