5.15 Function Declaration

Notation
"Parameters without a declared typed"
    s/typed/type/

Norm / rule (1|2|3|4)
"[[ ParamList? ]]_Param"
    According to the Notation section, []_Param only applies to an
    individual parameter, not the whole list.

Norm / rule (1|2)
"[[ EnclosedExpr ]]_Expr"
    The []_Expr form isn't defined on EnclosedExprs.
    Rewrite "EnclosedExpr" as "{ Expr }", and put []_Expr around "Expr".

5.15 / Norm / rule (2|4)
(return type is not provided)
    For these two rules, it might be simpler for the RHS to be a recursive
    call to []_PrologDecl on a FunctionDecl with the "as item*" inserted.
    Then only rules 1 and 3 have to be concerned with the detailed
    normalization.

Norm / rule 4
"[[ QName ]]"
    Delete square brackets.

5.15 / SCP / para 1
"Because functions are mutually referential"
    s/are/can be/

"This rules also updates"
    s/also/therefore/   (or just delete "also")

STA
"The static typing rules for function bodies follows normalization ..."
    s/follows/follow/

"The typing rules below constructs a new environment"
    s/rules/rule/

"in which each variable has the given expected type"
    s/variable/parameter/

"the local functions component of the static context"
    s/local functions/function signatures/
    (funcType isn't just local functions)

"If type checking fails, a static error is raised."
    s/static/type/, I think. (err:XPTY0004)

DCP / rule 2 / conclusion
"Variable1 as SequenceType1"
"Variablen as SequenceTypen"
    You probably want to change 'Variable' to 'VarRef'.
(leftover from last year, comment #182)

"when the function is called and is described in ..."
    s/and is/, as/
