    I'm looking for a term that means to group a function with its
    arguments into a thingy that can be pulled apart and executed later.
    There's lots of ways to do this, I'm just looking for the word that
    means to doing this. I thought maybe it was "kerning" or
    "memoization", but it looks like those aren't it.

    Check out "command pattern", "delegate (.NET)" and "function object" in
    Wikipedia. Also check out bind1st et.al. in the standard library. It's
    not clear exactly what you mean.

    Try "binder" and "functor."
