 for associative array
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  associative array
  
      (Or "hash", "map", "dictionary") An array
     where the indices are not just integers but may be
     arbitrary strings.
  
     awk and its descendants (e.g. Perl) have associative
     arrays which are implemented using hash coding for faster
     look-up.
