[REBOL] Re: relative expressions

I've found that all data and functions have a natural language "definition",
much like pseudocode....
Take all the numbers from the group N, multiply each by 3 and print the
TakeAllNumbersOfN-MultiplyBy3AndPrintFunction: Func [N] [Foreach val n
[print val * 3]
Every sentence has a subject and a predicate. In the sentence above, the
subject is N and the predicate is the function.
As I mentioned in earlier posts, there should be a "standard English" (any
symbols would do as long as we all agree) to represent the predicates, in
this case functions, and what I call LFReD names to represent subjects...
which is why 'everything needs an LFReD name"
This concept can carry into other areas;
(Rebol) (rocks the house).
