    it's also worth noting that you can implement the pretty useless restrictions interfaces provide for you with duck typing

    foo( a ) { a.doYouImplementIAddable() }

    class Foo {

    doYouImplementIAddable() { true }


    a = new Foo()

    foo(a) // true

    a = 5

    foo(a) // Fail, could even fail at compile time

    So really duck typing is a superset of everything static languages offer. If you want a complicated taxonomy go right ahead with dynamic typing. But they also let you do so much more.
