Style: Mnemonic Identifiers

Choose identifiers that are mnemonic (``assisting memory'') to make your programs easier for you (and others) to read.


   (define (fun1 arg1 arg2 arg3) ...)

(define (draw-circle x y radius) ...)

Rule: Make each identifier self-descriptive.

Long names are allowed by most languages, and with modern user interfaces, they are not hard to type.
