Alias - Function Summary
Creates an alternate spelling for a word.
alias word name
word - Word to alias (must be: word)
name - Name of alias (must be: string)
Create an alias for a word. The alias will be identical in every respect to the aliased word (symbol comparison and value referencing). Be careful not to confuse alias with setting another word to the same value. The alias cannot be set if the word already appears anywhere within the script or has been used in any way prior to being aliased.

Notice that ALIASes work for refinements and dialects too.
