I’m still wondering if there is an established term for a non-function-valued property in the JavaScript community (where method is a term for a function-valued property). Possibilities that I see are:

- instance variable
- member variable
- field

OO literature sometimes uses the term “attribute” but that is already taken by ES-262.
