Strings being a base atomic type is not the same as strings being structures.>>12405
That's an encoding of data external to the program, which then has to parse it into its own internal structure.
From your link:>JSON is a data encoding and transfer format which has nested structures and arrays, but ultimately builds structure out of string to string mappings.
Here again we have strings as atoms, not as structures. The mapping itself is not "stringly-typed".
