What if, in java programming language, we said "function" instead of "method"? Any thoughts?

Method sounds a little corny to me

In so many java programming books i have read, the authors do specify it clearly that you can either call it a method or function. Bear in mind that the term method is mostly used in java programming while function is used in c++ and some other languages like javascript e.t.c The term method or function doesnt really matter provided you know exactly what you are doing. NB : I prefer to call it a function.

in most of languages, there are functions and methods. they are the same, except method is a function related to a class/object. so method == function of object in OOP. and since every code in java starts with a 'class' statement, java MAKES you to use OOP. and if you are using OOP, your functions become methods, but they don't stop being functions nevertheless.
