# [NTG-context] defining a comamnd as variable which behaves as constant

Dear list,

I have the following document:

\mainlanguage[es]
\starttext
\startTEXpage[offset=1em]
\dorecurse{27}%
{\def\abcd{\convertnumber{a}{\recurselevel}}%
\dorecurse{27}%
{\abcd\convertnumber{a}{\recurselevel} }\par}
\stopTEXpage
\stoptext

I want to test all lowercase-letter pairs in Spanish.

Excuse me for my missing programming notions. For the sample above, I
would need a command that behaves as a variable when defined, but as a
constant when invoked.

Is there any way to achieve that without using counters? Sorry if there
is too much nonsense in the previous paragraph. But I need to know how
to do it for another example too.
