ML is remarkable in providing statically typed polymorphism without the
programmer ever having to write any type annotations.
The cost of this parsimony is that the programmer is limited to a form of
polymorphism in which quantifiers can occur only at the outermost level of a
type and type variables can be instantiated only with monomorphic types.

Type inference for unrestricted System F-style
polymorphism is undecidable in general. Nevertheless, the literature abounds
with a range of proposals to bridge the gap between ML and System F.

We put forth a new proposal, FreezeML, a conservative extension of ML with two
new features. First, let- and lambda-binders may be annotated with arbitrary
System F types. Second, variable occurrences may be frozen, explicitly
disabling instantiation. FreezeML is equipped with type-preserving
translations back and forth between System F and admits a type inference
algorithm, an extension of algorithm W, that is sound and complete and which
yields principal types.
