Quasi-Quotation, philosophy: is an expression for the form in which the citing of statements or parts of statements has to be done, which themselves contain variables. (See W.V.O. Quine, 1961, ยง6). Since different things can be inserted instead of these variables, the reference has to be established first or the missing reference must be indicated. Filling in formula data can be understood similarly. For example, one is not asked to write "date of birth", but to note down a value in the place [date of birth]. See also mentioning, use.
