 for strict evaluation
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  strict evaluation
  
     Call-by-value evaluation order is sometimes called "strict
     evaluation" because, in a sequential system, it makes
     functions behave as though they were strict, in the sense
     that evaluation of a function application cannot terminate
     before evaluation of the argument.  Similarly, languages are
     called strict if they use call-by-value argument passing.
  
     Compare eager evaluation, lazy evaluation.
