  • Semantics : The understanding of what words mean... More or less what all this is about.
    Compare to: Syntax : The formal rules for putting word in sentences... how you write it
    Those two are an unseparable pair - even though Dan Sugalski often says "thats syntax, and I don't do syntax" on the perl6 lists while discussing syntax ;-P

    Scope, lexical and localising are all aspects of the same thing, more or less ... or not depending on how you look at it.

    Pragma is something which changes either the syntax or the semantics of your language - not just extends it, but changes it.

    Just my dKr 0,02 - as another non-native-English-speaker (even though English was my second language - a joint second place with gaelic, french and latin, which may be the reason for my muddled way of writing, thinking and speaking).
