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

  formal argument
      (Or "parameter") A name in a function or
     subroutine definition that is replaced by, or bound to, the
     corresponding actual argument when the function or
     subroutine is called.  In many languages formal arguments
     behave like local variables which get initialised on entry.
     See: argument.
