  1. schematic variable

    In logic, a metavariable (also metalinguistic variable or syntactical variable) is a symbol or symbol string which belongs to a metalanguage and stands for elements of some object language. For instance, in the sentence Let A and B be two sentences of a language ℒthe symbols A and B are part of the metalanguage in which the statement about the object language ℒ is formulated. John Corcoran considers this terminology unfortunate because it obscures the use of schemata and because such "variables" do not actually range over a domain.: 220 The convention is that a metavariable is to be uniformly substituted with the same instance in all its appearances in a given schema. This is in contrast with nonterminal symbols in formal grammars where the nonterminals on the right of a production can be substituted by different instances.Attempts to formalize the notion of metavariable result in some kind of type theory.
