it's pretty funny to speak normal languages after you learn it
they seem so fragile and flimsy. I mean compare English to Haskell!
:)
Haskell is far better at describing things accuratly, so others could understand what they meant
same with Lojban, but it's speakable by humans
by others in the Haskell example while refering to other computers I also refer to other developers :)
sorearwe can't explain stuff like creativity
so in human languages we have to wedge it in as a primop
and there's no standard form for those primops in haskell
thus rendering haskell useless for most human communication
nmessenger@remember sorear we can't explain stuff like creativity so in human languages we have to wedge it in as a primop
