I submit that the word 'positional' in the TypeError message exacerbates this confusion, and that little would be lost by simply dropping it from the exception message.
+1 for using the unqualified "argument" in these error messages to mean "positional or keyword argument" (inspect.Parameter spells it out as POSITIONAL_OR_KEYWORD, but the full phrase is far too verbose for an error message).
