An interesting question.
I agree with @Aganju that it is overkill.
()'s alone mean something like "with" or "by" or "in the context of" these arguments, so no need for that in the text of the identifier that names the function.
In many languages, if you use the identifier
getColor without the
()'s then that refers to the function or method itself rather than an invocation of it; for example, if you want to pass the function itself as a parameter somewhere for someone else to use. I suppose that formally the
If you use OOP, then we might see:
player.getColor() which makes it read somewhat clear that
getColor is being done by
player (possibly in the context of ("with") other arguments, if it takes them).
Further, the notion of adding a preposition probably does not scale well for more parameters.
Some, but not all, languages offer naming actual arguments at the call site (by the formal parameter name) so you can do
getColor(for:=player), and, with that you'd get to provide descriptive names (that could be prepositions or more) for multiple parameters.
