Just so that nobody overgeneralizes this into a general Perl meme, let me point out that to the best of my recollection (which ain't as good as it used to was), I've never heard the term "lexiconical" used that way (or any way, really), and I'd be completely weirded out if someone used it that way, since dynamic typing (figuring out types on the fly) has almost nothing to do with either lexicons or lexical scoping. So I suspect someone has subjected you to a rather idiosyncratic term and definition there... Larry
