[Haskell-cafe] styles

Haskell seems to be a language that allows for lots of different 
programming styles.  The most obvious being pointed v.s. point free.

As a programmer born and raised on OO - I have found the pointed style 
to suit me better.

However, there are other distinctions.  I heavily use "let in" and 
"where" to break up each function into smaller parts while I see other 
programmers putting everything in one line.

I have seen the evolution of a Haskell programmer joke and most of it 
goes over my head.

My question is

"Is there standard terminology for the different programming styles in 
Haskell (besides pointed and point-free)?"
