I think Ladislav is the one who should answer you here. :-) Indeed, those terms are not officially used in REBOL.

Perhaps. But always try to approach REBOL with a free mind; concepts from other languages (even languages like Scheme that's so close to REBOL) tend to make confusion when applied to REBOL.
