Chris Jerdonek added the comment:
We could start by establishing the argument/parameter distinction in the glossary. Currently, the word "parameter" does not appear in the glossary, and the definition of "argument" blurs the distinction between the two:
For example, in the following definition of "argument"--
"argument: A value passed to a function or method, assigned to a named local variable in the function body. A function or method may have both positional arguments and keyword arguments in its definition..."
(from http://docs.python.org/dev/glossary.html#term-argument )
the second sentence is actually talking about parameters.
