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

  dynamic link
      A pointer from an activation record to the
     activation record for the scope from which the current
     scope was called at run time.  This is used in a statically
     scoped language to restore the environment pointer on exit
     from a scope.  To access a non-local variable in a
     dynamically scoped language, dynamic links are followed
     until a binding for the given variable name is found.
