A Funcref optionally binds a Dictionary and/or arguments. This is also called a Partial. This is created by passing the Dictionary and/or arguments to function() or funcref(). When calling the function the Dictionary and/or arguments will be passed to the function.
To which concept does the term
I had some ideas, but I don't know which one, if any, is the right one:
maybe it's called a
Partial, because it's partially a function (the one to which the funcref refers), and partially data (the list of arguments or the dictionary, which are bound to the funcref)
the data are partially linked to the function; maybe we could bind them to another function
the list of arguments that the partial binds could be only a subset of the arguments used by the function to which the funcref refers; therefore, they're only a part of its arguments
