* masak submits a rakudobug about that<br />

See what the standard of &#39;awesome error messages&#39; is doing to us? But<br />
I do think English grammar mandates &#34;param&#34; when it&#39;s only 1<br />

It&#39;s Parrot behavior. It&#39;s trivial to change to &#34;Too many params passed&#34; or <br />

&gt;&gt;&gt; It&#39;s Parrot behavior.  It&#39;s trivial to change to &#34;Too many params passed&#34; or<br />
&gt;&gt;&gt; &#34;Too many results passed&#34;.  Would that be clearer?<br />

&gt;&gt;<br />
&gt;&gt; Maybe, but the problem as described in the original ticket was the<br />
&gt;&gt; inconsistency of &#39;1&#39; and &#39;params&#39; with an &#39;s&#39;.<br />
</div>
&gt;<br />
&gt; There&#39;s also the inconsistency of &#34;arguments&#34; vs &#34;params&#34;! Drop the<br />
&gt; &#34;params&#34; altogether.<br />
&gt;<br />
</div>
<br />
There&#39;s also also the fact that &#39;param&#39; is an abbreviation and looks<br />
sloppy, so it should be &#39;parameter&#39; vs &#39;argument&#39;. Which is right? I<br />
don&#39;t know, but I know that &#39;param&#39; is wrong. PIR might use it, but<br />
that&#39;s not the kind of thing we want to expose in error messages.<br />
<br />
Or at least, I don&#39;t.<br />
