- Looking at your Oxford English Dictionary through a microscope. (Also known as "static scoping", because dictionaries don't change very fast.) Similarly, looking at variables stored in a private dictionary (namespace) for each scope, which are visible only from their point of declaration down to the end of the lexical scope in which they are declared. --Syn. "static scoping". --Ant. "dynamic scoping".
