As shown by others, this is not correct for C#. But it did bring one question to mind.

When talking about a method signature, what are the inputs given to the method considered to be? Parameters or arguments? Those are the two most common that come to my mind, though I can think of others.

Are parameters and arguments just completely synonymous? Does it matter how they're being used? Maybe describing the definition of the method compared to describing being executed at runtime? What are they called when using one as a value or reference within the method? Or do they just just turn into "variable" at that point and the original term is meaningless?

I've thought about this too much now while writing this and can only contradict my own thoughts now. Does anyone have a clear way of thinking about this case?
