attribute lookup -> inspection
assignment -> ditto
enumerate -> enumeration
sequence unpacking -> parallel assignment
for-looping -> cycling
if-conditioning -> logic
lower -> mutation (don't try to argue!)
startswith -> boolean-logic
return -> exiting (although all exits require an entrance!)
omitted: documenting, referencing, -presumptuousness-
