[REBOL] Re: Linguistic influences

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 11-May-2002 11:22

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). --Gregg
