bq. “(Ruby calls atoms symbols)”

It might be nice to list equivalents for atoms in other langs, e.g. keywords in Lisp (symbols whose value is themselves). Or maybe atoms are closer to Lisp symbols in general; I don’t know enough about them yet.

I assume atoms in Elixir/Erlang are also similar to atoms in Prolog, since they share some heritage.
