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

  static link
  
      (Or "access link" or "environment link") A pointer
     from an activation record to the activation record for the
     textually enclosing scope.  A static link is only required
     in a statically (lexically) scoped language.
  
     The number of static links to follow may be determined
     statically (at compile time).  It is simply the difference in
     lexical nesting depth between the declaration and the
     reference.
  
     See also display.
