I am writing documentation. What are acceptable words for the following brackets?

The function f [what verbs are ok?] a name, then [what about here?] a phone number.

They can do a limited simulation of delegation by chaining the returns, but this adds an O(n) space overhead to the computation and consumes stack space, which is a finite resource (hence the limit).
