Arguments is an old term that is not used much any more. You still find arguments in many references. Parameters is the newer term for the same thing.

This is where words get confusing. When you use get/set many consider it a kind of super argument/parameter. That is why many references consider things with get/set use the term parameters.

My whole point in this rant is no one is right or wrong. They are not terms with rigid meanings cast in syntax stone. They are all just general concepts.
So many years of programming I have forgotten more languages than I know.
