in reply to Why "arguments"?

From dictionary.com:
6.Computer Science. A value used to evaluate a procedure or subroutine.

I think this is derived from #5:
Mathematics. - The independent variable of a function.
or #7:
Linguistics. - In generative grammar, any of various positions occupied by a noun phrase in a sentence.
