Functions that return values require parentheses. When you define functions in handlers, you need to include parentheses in the calling statement.

Use parentheses after the keywords sprite or member to identify the object's identifier:

for example, member("Jason Jones-Hughes")

. You can also use parentheses to override Lingo's order of precedence or to make your Lingo statements easier to read.
