  • verb noun adjective is Lisp function definition order?

    Wikipedia's Word_order entry [wikipedia.org] says: The overwhelming majority of the world's languages are either SVO or SOV, with a much smaller but still significant portion using VSO word order. The remaining three arrangements are exceptionally rare, with VOS being slightly more common than OVS and OSV being significantly more rare than two preceding ones.
    • You're right; "adjective" there is hand-waving, but Lisp does hew to VSO or VOS, depending on what you consider O or S.
