evaluation of macro arguments proceed "as needed", for example a macro can produce an infinite list of ".", but the consumer function can decide only to take a finite amount of them (for example to create the .... in a table of contents). In a funcitonal language with strict evaluaiton the infinite list would produce a loop. Similar behaviour in non-lazy languages is obtained via "promises", generators, etc..
