ML is an abbreviation for Meta Language. It was created by R. Milner and a team, in 1973. It is a strict higher-order functional language, with a formal semantics. It is garbage collected, and the first language to include polymorphic typing that is statically checked. ML is one of the direct inspirations informing Alan Kay and the design of Smalltalk.
