 +**Contents**

 +    * **statically typed language** A language in which types are fixed at compile time. Most statically typed languages enforce this by requiring you to declare all variables with their datatypes before using them. Java and C are statically typed languages.
 +    * **dynamically typed language** A language in which types are discovered at execution time; the opposite of statically typed. VBScript and Python are dynamically typed, because they figure out what type a variable is when you first assign it a value.
 +    * **strongly typed language** A language in which types are always enforced. Java and Python are strongly typed. If you have an integer, you can't treat it like a string without explicitly converting it.
 +    * **weakly typed language** A language in which types may be ignored; the opposite of strongly typed. VBScript is weakly typed. In VBScript, you can concatenate the string '​12'​ and the integer 3 to get the string '​123',​ then treat that as the integer 123, all without any explicit conversion.
