# Language extensions¶

Elaboration extends the language accepted by the Coq kernel to make it easier to use. For example, this lets the user omit most type annotations because they can be inferred, call functions with implicit arguments which will be inferred as well, extend the syntax with notations, factorize branches when pattern-matching, etc. In this chapter, we present these language extensions and we give some explanations on how this language is translated down to the core language presented in the previous chapter.
