Scots Syntax Atlas edit / delete

Interesting project looking at syntactical differences in different regional versions of Scots. (Presumably because they were only looking at syntax, all the examples are transcribed with English spellings, which feels a bit odd...)

Understanding and Writing Compilers edit / delete

Richard Bornat's 1979 book on writing compilers. Substantially more accessible than the dragon book. The examples are mostly in BCPL, which (as usual) I'm dead impressed with; for a typeless language it's very clean and clearly suited to the purpose.

Go's Declaration Syntax - The Go Blog edit / delete

Discussion of Go's slightly unusual type declarations. I appreciate what they're trying to do -- but occam solved the same problem in the 1980s without having to write all the declarations backwards...

A Lisp-like language idea using indentation rather than brackets. Neat; has some similarities to the simplified occam syntax I was talking about a couple of years ago.
