动/静态类型和强/弱类型

摘自"Dive into Python"

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. V
BScript 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. V
BScript 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.
