Which assembly language did you use?  I know three assembly languages
(x86, MIPS, 6502) and all of them have some concept of pointers, usually
in parenthesis, something like:

   mov ax, (dx)    ; x86... if I remember the syntax correctly
                   ; (time to read my own assembly tutorial...)
   lw $1, 0($2)    ; MIPS
   lda (ptr),y     ; 6502

but they don't call them "pointers" but "indirect memory access" (or
something to do with being indirect)...
