It justs means, "BLAH typeset as a mathematical function name".
The best general LaTeX translation would be

  @[startlword]BLAH@[endlword] => \operatorname{BLAH}

I guess ReST would accept that. (In TeX context, there's the problem of
entering / leaving math mode but I guess you already handle that ?)



P.S. Perhaps with a dictionary of predefined names: plain.tex defines
exactly 32 standard functions:


Anything not in this list should use the \operatorname construct.
