ANSI Common Lisp 3 Evaluation and Compilation 3.1 Evaluation
3.1.1 Introduction to Environments
A binding is an association between a name and
that which the name denotes. Bindings are established
in a lexical environment or a dynamic environment
by particular special operators.
An environment is a set of bindings and other information
used during evaluation (e.g., to associate meanings with names).
Bindings in an environment are partitioned into namespaces.
A single name can simultaneously have more than one
associated binding per environment,
but can have only one associated binding per namespace.
