comment Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions
So, to be sure I understand, \[FormalA] can never be assigned a value and so it works. \[Alpha] and the like, however, are not write protected in the same way that a and b are not protected, but still works. What is different, then, about \[Alpha] and \[Beta] that makes this work? Are they something in between regular a and \[FormalA]?

Thanks for the answer. The problem that I am running into, however, is that I have an expression that I would like to plot saved somewhere that is not already a function proper. So, for example, I have the following, both of which do not work. Clear["`*"] someExpression = Sin[a x + b]; func[x_, a_, b_] := someExpression Manipulate[Plot[func[x, a, b], {x, 0, 6}], {a, 1, 4}, {b, 0, 10}] Clear[func] func[x_, a_, b_] := Function[{x, a, b}, someExpression][x, a, b] Manipulate[Plot[func[x, a, b], {x, 0, 6}], {a, 1, 4}, {b, 0, 10}]
