There is a technical difference (as explained in other replies).

However when talking informally the terms can be used interchangeably, so I
wouldn't rely on that distinction.

No. It's nothing to do with that. And C only has 'functions', and 'ByVal' as
the official parameter (or argument..) passing mode.
