Great post Joel!
<< What is the extent to which a person's native (or habitual)
language influences that person's mental habits? Do those
influences then emerge in other kinds of behavior, such as
programming style? >>
I think the influence will be large indeed, which is one of the things that
will make dialects, and the ease with which they can be created, so powerful
in the future. I'm not a linguist, but what reading I've done on
Transformational Grammars and related subjects has certainly opened my eyes
to new ways of thinking (to mix a metaphor or two).
