Latin vs English/German

Latin is more like a stack. Data just gets crammed in the sentence, and each word identifies its place.

German and English depend on word order. Data must go in order for it to be properly understood, but the words themselves remain themselves.

I have a lot to say on language; this was just a lazy moment.

This sort of derives from my attempts at writing programs that, using syntax, could steadily draw meaning out of hearing someone talk. Part of doing that is interpreting sentences, and that's where this wenie little post comes into play.
