I don't know if you solved this but this can be solved with a trick.

function getString pVerb
  repeat with x = 2 to the paramcount
    put quote & param(x) & quote & comma after tParams
  end repeat
  delete char -1 of tParams
  get the merge of  "[[ tCommand ]]([[tParams]])"
  get ("<? return" && it && "?>")
  return the merge of it
end getString

function doCommand pVerb, pArgs
 -- do something with parameters
 -- return something
end doCommand

this way, if you call getString like this:

put getString("doCommand", "1", "2", "3") into tShoogles

you are actually calling doCommand("1","2","3")
