Or, if you don’t want to create such parameters to identify your senders, you could use the executionContexts:

    send "selectionChanged item 2 of line -1 of the executionContexts" to <target> in <time>

Or, if you want to reduce clutter in your many senders, you could just:

    send "selectionChanged the executionContexts" to <target> in <time>
