Hello list,

I’m in the middle of implementing the expansion algorithm <https://json-ld.org/spec/latest/json-ld-api/#algorithm-2>. § is a bit confusing:

• For each key/value pair in element where key expands to @type using the IRI Expansion algorithm, passing active context, key for value, and true for vocab:
	• For each term which is a value of value ordered lexicographically, if term's term definition in active context has a local context, set active context to the result to the result of the Context Processing algorithm, passing active context and the value of the term's local context as local context.

I read this as:

• iterate over object keys, IRI-expanding as you go
• if a key evaluates to `@type`, then its value should be one or more terms which are ultimately supposed to represent rdfs:Class resources (I assume we coerce this into an array?)

and now, the part that I’m not so sure about:

• sort the type/class term(s) lexicographically
• check the active context for mappings for these terms
• if any matching term definitions are found to contain an embedded context, supplant the active context with a merged copy.

Did I read that right?

Make things. Make sense.
