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