Appendix A Reserved Words

As mentioned in Primitives, not all identifiers can be used as variables. The following sections provide a complete list of identifiers that are forbidden as variable names. These identifiers fall into two categories: keywords, which are never allowed as variable names, and predeclared variables, which are “read-only” variables; they can be utilized just like any other variables but cannot be redeclared.
