Passing an argument using addEventListener

Sorry if this is a no-brainer. The transition from AS2.0 to 3.0 has been a long and broken trail for me.

Is there a way to pass arguments to a function via addEventListener, like (but unlike) this:
timerTurn.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, moveUnit, “unitname”, “unitdirection”)

where moveUnit is the function I want triggered, and “unitname”/“unitdirection” are the arguments?
