I prefer the "xyz parameter" because I think it flows better and is the
correct way to reference it.

The "parameter xyz" needs a comma in my opinion. To me it's more
correct, "The parameter, xyz, blah blah blah......." If you did it that
way, then I would be in the tomayto tomahto category.

FWIW

Hi group

Which do you prefer (and why):
[a] The xyz parameter shows ... (xyz is a premodifier) [b] The parameter
xyz shows ... (xyz is a postmodifier)


Thanks
