3.2 Disjointness of types
No object satisfies more than one of the following predicates:
boolean? pair? symbol? number? char? string? vector? port? procedure?
These predicates define the types boolean, pair, symbol, number, char (or character), string, vector, port, and procedure. The empty list is a special object of its own type; it satisfies none of the above predicates.
Although there is a separate boolean type, any Scheme value can be used as a boolean value for the purpose of a conditional test. As explained in section Booleans, all values count as true in such a test except for #f. This report uses the word “true” to refer to any Scheme value except #f, and the word “false” to refer to #f.
