Following up on earlier remarks distinguishing "the equals sign" from "the assignment operator", we would like to comment upon the distinction, in canine obedience training, between the name vs. the utterance of a command. For example, when we call upon the dog to "come", we are giving the "recall" command. We say "come" but the name of the command is "recall". Now, it may amuse you, NeuroCooking friends, to learn that many dogs are trained to "speak", in that "speak" is the utterance often used for the command known as "stand for examination".
