  Reference (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Reference in a context is ‘content,’ that is, an expression's contribution to ‘what is said.’ Character is more like linguistic meaning than reference and is supposed (according to Kaplan) to account for cognitive significance.
Reference is arguably the central notion in the philosophy of language, with close ties to the notions of meaning and truth.
Reference, construed as a relation between bits of language and bits of reality, is assumed to be a genuine, substantive relation worthy of philosophical scrutiny.

  Reference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In semantics, reference is generally construed as the relation between nouns or pronouns and objects that are named by them.
In computer science, references are datatypes which refer to an object elsewhere in memory, and are used to construct a wide variety of data structures such as linked lists.
In scholarship, a reference may be a citation of a text that has been used in the creation of a piece of work such as an essay, report, or oration.

 PHP: References Explained - Manual
References in PHP are a means to access the same variable content by different names.
Passing a variable by reference will do essentially the same thing when you pass the data to the function, only modifying it will modify the data that is in the memory already versus copying it to a new location in memory.
The result is that when you change a function to pass by reference, it will only become more efficient if, inside the function, the passed variable is having its data altered, in which case passing by reference causes your code to alter the data of the original copy.

 PHP: Passing by Reference - Manual
If you modify the variable (and not affect a new reference to the variable name) that you are affecting all variable that reference the same data.
The idea is to create object that will hold the reference and pass the instance of this 'Reference object' as a desired parameter (which is not preceded by and operator).
If you plan on assigning the reference to a new variable in your function, you must use the reference operator in the function declaration as well as in the assignment.

 Digital Reference
My expectation is that by conceptualizing as many facets of reference as possible, I might shift my thinking about the future of reference service and also grapple with the question of what is and what isn't reference.
Users add the library as a friend in Twitter so they can send reference questions to Twitter, having been forewarned that there is no privacy in submitting their questions this way (the library could tell users that it's like putting a question on an online bulletin board or forum).
In our cooperative chat reference service, I have noticed that some librarians rarely point students to print resources when those resources may in fact be the best (and sometimes only) source of information for the topic in question.
