Reference Function Name Via Variable?

Hi List:

Just curious...  Is there any way to construct a function using a name
stored in a variable without resorting to "do"?  For example:

on mouseUp
   put "hello" into pData1
   put "world" into pData2
   put "shout" into test
   do "answer" && test & "(pData1,pData2)"
end mouseUp

function shout pData1,pData2
   return pData1 && pData2
end shout

Can the last line of the mouseUp handler be written without "do"?  I'm not
against using "do", just wondering if there's another option.

Thanks & Regards,
