"Some programming languages are weakly typed (Lisp), and you can get strongly typed scripting languages (Perl, with the correct pragma). "

Wrong. Lisp is a dynamic, strongly typed language.

You cannot substitute one type for another(strong typing).

Variables can be bound to any value/type however(dynamic typing).
