This is a good question.  I have tried different words and have  
settled on "call".  I think I have seen in a HyperTalk manual words  
like "use", "send", "call", "generate", "invoke" and "issue".  One  
might add to that "execute", "do" and so on.  However, "do", "call"  
and "send" are commands, so that can be confusing.  I stumble over  
this often.

I'm sure a true card-head would have a better answer.
