 for ''calling convention''
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  calling convention
  
      The arrangement of arguments for a procedure
     or function call.  Different programming languages may require
     arguments to be pushed onto a stack or entered in
     registers in left-to-right or right-to left order, and
     either the caller or the callee can be responsible for
     removing the arguments.  The calling convention also
     determines if a variable number of arguments is allowed.
