However, that's just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to numbers, strings and lists, Python also offers two other very interesting variants, referred to in Python-lingo as dictionaries and tuples. Similar in concept to lists - both allow you to group related items together - these two data structures possess their own distinctive properties and methods, and provide clever Python programmers with a great deal of power and flexibility.
