It is the use of routine names after strings in amongs. To quote from the

In its most general form, each string 'Sij' may be optionally followed by
a routine name,

    among( (C)
           'S11' R11 'S12' R12 ... (C1)
           'S21' R21 'S22' R22 ... (C2)
           'Sn1' Rn1 'Sn2' Rn1 ... (Cn)

So here each Rij is either a routine name or is null. If null, it is
equivalent to a routine which simply returns signal t.
