You should learn this: C-h f

Whenever you start typing (something ...
type C-h f

If you have the cursor just after something, then it should be
selected and you need to type just RET

So type:  ( l e t C-h f RET
and read!

is to develop with a dynamic system that has extreme late binding in
all aspects. The first system to really do this in an important way
is Lisp. -- Alan Kay
