    1. Whenever I say man/son, I intend this irrespective of gender, which is such a rudimentary concept for spiritual beings that we are temporarily incarnated, housed in these bodies of ours for a lifetime.

      Not sure if I should use trailmarks and listicle here or not? I will choose to use it.

      gendered syntax - I understand, but I also pointed out that the evolutionary nature of a language's syntax gives it unique gender characteristics. - I gave the example of my own mother tongue of Cantonese which is syntactically more gender neutral instead of English, which is patriarchal: - Cantonese (play the audio at the following links) - person - https://www.cantoneseclass101.com/cantonese-dictionary/ - man - https://www.cantoneseclass101.com/cantonese-dictionary/ - woman - https://www.cantoneseclass101.com/cantonese-dictionary/ - In the Cantonese language, the suffix (Yan) means person, - It is then modified by the respective female and male prefix - Noi (female) - Nam (male) - This gives us gender neutral syntax, as opposed to English where we have patriarchal gender syntax, where the suffix is male and the female is constructed as a secondary concatenation using the male syntactical suffix - male - FEmale - man - WOman - HUman - HUmanITY - men - WOmen - The English language gives syntactical primacy to the male gender, while a language such as Cantonese does not - What the psychological effects are, I'm not sure of. For within the Cantonese language, there is as much patriarchism as any other culture. It is not a particularly feminine culture. - And the gender neutrality does not even take into account of the more recent transgender category.

      to - Cantonese syntax - person - man - woman - https://hyp.is/3wgg0BQOEe-uRQ-kpQf8Eg/www.cantoneseclass101.com/cantonese-dictionary/ - With English, we have to read between the lines and project the author's salience landscape because it's not explicit in the syntax.

      PROBLEM - This page does not generate a unique URL for each of the onpage search results returned. - Can Indyweb create unique CID for this?

    1. There are two kinds of message cascades.

      For some reason, before reading this, I misunderstood the “cascade” as a metaphor for composition, were the water fallen from a first cascade might flow as input to a second cascade; but now I see this is clearly wrong and the cascade means exactly the contrary, since the punctuation :: and ; breaks that continuity. It means a jump in the regular flow of evaluation, as a cascade means a jump.

      The double colon syntax is specific to Cuis; at least it is not valid syntax in Squeak.

    1. the declaration itself is Smalltalk code, indeed the message #subclass:instanceVariableNames:classVariableNames:... was sent to Magnitude to create this class.

      Gilad Bracha's criticism:

      Semi-tangent: source code seems the most obvious thing in the world; but traditional Smalltalk’s have no real syntax above the method level! Classes are defined via the evaluation of reflective expressions, which rely on the reflective API. This is very problematic: the API often varies from one implementation to another. By the way, this is one of the ways Newspeak differs from almost every Smalltalk (the late, great Resilient being the only exception I can recall). Newspeak has a true syntax. Furthermore, because Newspeak module declarations are fully parametric in all their external dependencies, they can be compiled at any time in any order - unlike code in most languages (say Java packages) where there are numerous constraints on compilation order (e.g., imports must be defined).

    1. Let me illustrate by examining a well-known passage, Genesis 7:17–18, in which the flood comes and Noah’s ark is lifted up above the earth. The example involves the Hebrew syntactic tendency to open each sentence in narrative with “and,” to order the words in parallel clauses by coordination (“and” + “and” + “and”), rather than by subordination (“because,” “so,” or “although”). This biblical syntactic feature, known as parataxis, affects the text’s rhythm, its temporal interpretation, its layers of cohesion and ambiguity. Here is Alter’s rendering of this passage: “And the Flood was forty days over the earth, and the waters multiplied and bore the ark upward and it rose above the earth. And the waters surged and multiplied mightily over the earth, and the ark went on the surface of the water.”
    1. options.delete(:expires_in) { ActiveStorage.urls_expire_in }

      What is the contents of the block for? When is it invoked?

      I assume this is a type, and should have been fetch() { } instead?

    1. Compositionality is defined here as the property whereby “the meaning of anexpression is a monotonic function of the meaning of its parts and the way they are puttogether.” (Cann 1993:4) Recursion is “the phenomenon by which a constituent of a sen-tence dominates another instance of the same syntactic category . . . recursion is the principlereason that the number of sentences in a natural language is normally taken to be infinite”(Trask 1993:229-230)

      Kirby defines two fundamental properties of language. For one, language is compositional. The meaning of each part of a sentence, as well as the order in which these individual pieces appear, defines the overall meaning of that sentence. Language is also recursive (and therefore infinite). Each constituent in a phrase may contain one or more child constituents of the same syntactic category.

    1. As I said above, the deciding factor is what is meant by syntax. If the request was sent with a Content Type of application/json, then yes, the request is syntactically valid because it's valid JSON syntax, but not semantically valid, since it doesn't match what's expected. (assuming a strict definition of what makes the request in question semantically valid or not). If, on the other hand, the request was sent with a more specific custom Content Type like application/vnd.mycorp.mydatatype+json that, perhaps, specifies exactly what fields are expected, then I would say that the request could easily be syntactically invalid, hence the 400 response.

    1. The problem is that the caller may write yield instead of block.call. The code I have given is possible caller's code. Extended method definition in my library can be simplified to my code above. Client provides block passed to define_method (body of a method), so he/she can write there anything. Especially yield. I can write in documentation that yield simply does not work, but I am trying to avoid that, and make my library 100% compatible with Ruby (alow to use any language syntax, not only a subset).

      An understandable concern/desire: compatibility

      Added new tag for this: allowing full syntax to be used, not just subset

    2. You cannot use yield inside a define_method block. This is because blocks are captured by closures, observe: def hello define_singleton_method(:bye) { yield } end hello { puts "hello!" } bye { puts "bye!" } #=> "hello!"
    1. But this sounds like spreading fear and doubt when the Ruby parser has no such concepts :) {} always binds tightly to the call right next to it. This block {} will never go to using, unless it's rewritten as do ... end.

    1. The key wordsthat draw you to the reading withing these two sentences are “positive” and “this is greatnews”.

      Within? There is no end quotation mark for the end of his sentence verbatim. "This is great news, as a satisfying sex life has been found to be important for health and well-being, regardless of age. For older adults in particular, being sexually active predicts a longer and healthier life."

    2. excepted

      who accepted to complete an extensive survey? Excepted means to exempt from the group or category, and that doesn't line up with the source rhetoric. "We analyzed patterns in longitudinal data collected from over 6,000 individuals followed over a period of 18 years, spanning ages 20-93"

    3. had better sexual quality

      I believe this phrase is missing a determiner: -had a/the better sexual quality of life

    1. I am not sure if this is an improvement. To me it does not seem very pretty. Of course I am biased since I also prefer () in method definitions if they have arguments; although I think it is fine that ruby does not mind omitting the (). For my brain, I like the () for visual separation.

    1. My preference here is biased by the fact that I spend everyday at work building web components, so Svelte's approach feels very familiar to slots in web components.

      first sighting: That <template>/<slot> is part of HTML standard and the reason Svelte uses similar/same syntax is probably because it was trying to make it match / based on that syntax (as they did with other areas of the syntax, some of it even JS/JSX-like, but more leaning towards HTML-like) so that it's familiar and consistent across platforms.

    2. Here's where I start to have a preference for Svelte; the two are very similar but once I got used to Svelte I found that React felt like jumping through hoops. You can't create a worker instance, it has to go in a useRef, and then you can't easily pull code out into a function without then requiring useCallback so it can be a safe dependency on useEffect. With Svelte I write code that's closer to "plain" JavaScript, whereas in React more of my code is wrapped in a React primitive.
    1. You don’t have to stick to the task interface! The [circuit interface] is a bit more clumsy, but gives you much better control over how ctx and signals are handled.
    2. The circuit interface is a bit more clumsy but it gives you unlimited power over the way the activity will be run.

    1. Not only is it barbaric, it is biased.

      This word choice is bold. It's a short, choppy sentence that holds a lot of meaning. This particularly could appeal to Black people in the audience as well as any audience members that have previous interest or education on racial inequality. This word choice is also intense and emotional, captivating the audience's attention.

    1. I wanted to keep reviewing restaurants, but I didn’t want to go back into their dining rooms both because of the risk and because I was afraid readers would take it as an all-clear signal. When the governor halted indoor dining again in December, my selfish reaction was relief. Then I briefly got depressed. How would restaurants survive? And how would I keep writing about them?One answer had already started to appear on sidewalks and streets in the form of small greenhouses, huts, tents and yurts. Inside these personal dining rooms, you can (and should) sit just with people from your own household. If the restaurant thoroughly airs the space out between seatings, any germs you breathe in should be the same ones that are bouncing around your home. Many restaurants instruct their servers to stay outside the structures as much as possible, though some don’t.

      Syntax of question and answer reveals itself again. His doubts and negativity are addressed within the first highlighted paragraph with a question coming to Pete's mind. He realized his influence as a critic and decided to take the right step to prevent anything bad from occurring. Despite his sacrifice, the next paragraph he discusses the clever solutions restaurants had come up with which solved his problem for the most part. This description underlines yet more change that brought upon good things, which is the main idea he is relating to the food scene. He creates a comparison between an at home setting along with the solutions restaurants have come up with to further emphasize his point of safety amidst COVID.

    2. “Why would Pete Wells order delivery from us?” the sous-chef asked.“Maybe he’s hungry?” Mr. Tran replied.I was. But I was on the job, too, and that first order persuaded me

      Q & A syntax which reveals two separate perspectives to the reader-- adds to the change factor within these times that Wells is trying to communicate. Informal tone taken on by Pete as food is more personal and opinionated. His audience are those who want to experience new, good food amidst these times. Humor and irony with the "Maybe he's hungry?" from Mr. Tran, stating the obvious with a purpose along with explaining how the chefs can't forget about the job at hand.

    1. The values represent the track size, and the space between them represents the grid line.
    2. The syntax itself provides a visualization of the structure of the grid.

      What is this an example of? self-referencing? self-presentation? duality?

    1. Another possible syntax is {#slot bar}<Foo/>{/slot}, which would also allow a bunch of DOM nodes and components inside the slot, without them needing to be from a single component

    1. Since it has been a common source of errors, it is worth noting that spaces are not permitted on either side of the colon following FROM in the MAIL command or TO in the RCPT command. The syntax is exactly as given above.

      I like it

    1. Things that I miss most from Vue:
    2. But I always thought that if Svelte will change its syntax to something new, it will more look like ES6 Template Literals
    3. Btw, I also personally like Dust-syntax: https://github.com/linkedin/dustjs/wiki/Dust-Tutorial
    4. The success of JSX has proved that the second curly is unnecessary. Moreover, a lot of people — particularly those who have been exposed to React — have a visceral negative reaction to double curlies, many of them assuming that it brings with it all the limitations of crusty old languages like Mustache and Handlebars, where you can't use arbitrary JavaScript in expressions.
    1. <input {...omitBy({pattern: undefined}, isUndefined)}>
    2. For now, using spread attributes allows you to control which attributes appear on an element. <div {...foo}> where foo is an object of attribute keys and values will add/remove attributes according to which are present and non-null.

    1. One of the primary tasks of engineers is to minimize complexity. JSX changes such a fundamental part (syntax and semantics of the language) that the complexity bubbles up to everything it touches. Pretty much every pipeline tool I've had to work with has become far more complex than necessary because of JSX. It affects AST parsers, it affects linters, it affects code coverage, it affects build systems. That tons and tons of additional code that I now need to wade through and mentally parse and ignore whenever I need to debug or want to contribute to a library that adds JSX support.
    2. If the react cargo cult didn't have the JSX cowpath paved for them and acclimated to describing their app interface with vanilla javascript, they'd cargo cult around that. It's really about the path of least resistance and familiarity.
    3. The only "issue" it has is that its unfamiliar. People have been working with HTML for years and are comfortable with it. That's basically the only reason that people find it more readable. If you make an effort to spend sometime with hyperscript, it becomes as familiar and readable as jsx.
    1. My proposal is that we solve this by treating a static key prop as different from one provided through spread. I think that as a second step we might want to even give separate syntax such as:
    1. The problem is that the since both the JSX transpiler and the traceur compiler are actually parsing the full javascript AST, they would have to mutually agree on the syntax extensions you use: traceur can't parse the faux-xml syntax JSX adds, and JSX can't parse the async or await keywords, for example, or generator functions.

    1. Before MDX, some of the benefits of writing Markdown were lost when integrating with JSX. Implementations were often template string-based which required lots of escaping and cumbersome syntax.
    1. Remember even though the syntax is almost identical, there are significant differences between how Solid's JSX works and a library like React.

    1. The lack of spread continues to be a big pain for me, adding lots of difficult-to-maintain cruft in my components. Having to maintain a list of all possible attributes that I might ever need to pass through a component is causing me a lot of friction in my most composable components.
    1. The value attribute of an input element or its children option elements must not be set with spread attributes when using bind:group or bind:checked. Svelte needs to be able to see the element's value directly in the markup in these cases so that it can link it to the bound variable.
    1. Rest syntax looks exactly like spread syntax. In a way, rest syntax is the opposite of spread syntax. Spread syntax "expands" an array into its elements, while rest syntax collects multiple elements and "condenses" them into a single element.
    1. Syntax-wise, I would like to be able to pass id, style and class DOM attributes as well as (ideally) svelte props to whatever the slot was replaced with, so prefixing everything with attr in the slot that should be passed sounds like a good idea. Examples: <slot attr:class=“test” attr:class:active={true} /> or <slot attr:style=“color: red” attr:id=“henlo” />

    2. No, that would be wrong. This is supposed to be a review of the whole year, warts and all, and we have to face reality. So let’s all take a deep breath, compose ourselves and go back to …

      Syntax: Barry breaks into different thoughts and interrupts himself to make the sentences and ideas flow easily.

    3. ▪ A government report concludes that the Affordable Care Act (Motto: “If You Like Your Doctor, Maybe You’ll Like Your New Doctor”) is going to cost many people a lot more, while continuing to provide the same range of customizable consumer options as a parking meter. ▪

      Syntax: Barry likes to make bulleted lists to emphasize his points and lay them out in a clear manner. This makes his argument seem more like a lecture of sorts, implying that he is trying to teach/reveal something to the audience.

    4. (a) it was recorded long ago when he was just 59 years old; (b) his remarks were “locker room banter” such as you would hear in any locker room in America occupied by morally deficient billionaire pigs; (c) Bill Clinton did way worse things; and (d) WHAT ABOUT BENGHAZI?

      Barry sections long sentences into smaller ones to provide a mix of complexity and simplicity.

    5. namely the alleged weight gain of Alicia Machado, Miss Universe 1996.

      Not serious, big shift

    6. Clinton and Trump square off in the first presidential debate, which leads to a national conversation about an issue of vital concern to all Americans

      serious

    7. — get a load of THIS wacky right-wing conspiracy theory! —

      Syntax: Barry often interrupts his own lines of thought, as if he is speaking directly to the audience and saying exactly what he thinks at the time.

    8. Meanwhile Ben Carson announces, in his extremely low-key and soft-spoken manner, that he is going to suspend his campaign. Or visit Spain. Or possibly rob a train. There is no way to be certain.

      Barry frequently executes a structure of syntax where he states one long sentence followed by one or more very short sentences or even just a word. He starts with a complex idea and sentence structure, and then he makes his sentences shorter and more simple as he speaks more informally and describes things more humorously.

    9. A lengthy standoff at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon finally comes to an end when anti-government militants, after protracted negotiations

      Barry begins most of his sentences with profound diction, and then ends his sentences with a twist of sarcasm or irony.

    10. It wasn’t just bad. It was the Worst. Election. Ever.

      Barry uses a mix of complex, long, and detailed sentences with very simple sentences (sometimes just a word) to further develop his contrasting style of writing. This contrast allows Barry to speak in an intellectual and descriptive way, while also adding an equal amount of simple sentences to keep all readers, no matter their level of intelligence, engaged.

    1. AI relies upon a bet. It is the bet that if you get your syntax (mechanism) right the semantics (meaning) will take care of itself. It is the hope that if computer engineers get the learning feedback process right, a new transhuman intellect will emerge.

    1. 15. Find out the internet is going to rehab.

      this is personification. the internet can not actually go to rehab but it is going to rehab figuratively.

    2. Let the internet feed you faces. You like faces. A face is worth a thousand words.

      The author uses Syntax here as this sentence is structured in a peculiar way. The author introduces that the internet feeds you faces, and then how much a face betters to people nowadays. The way he structured it was also interesting as instead of just saying the internet makes us want people to look at us and provides that for us, he structures it in a way it tells you what the internet does, tells us what we like, and then rationalizes our want for it.

    3. Play Doom. Play Worms. Play Counterstrike. Play Chat Roulette. Sprint off the school bus to worship before the altar of the web. Become a back-of-a-head to your parents. Wait for fresh content. eBaum’s World on Fridays. Wimp’s daily five. Watching these videos is like swapping eyeballs with anyone on the planet. People are amazing, you realize, and stupid too. Torrent a movie that’s still in theaters. How is this even possible, you wonder. Watch it. Watch porn. Tell your friends that you found something incredible and that you’ve fallen in love with the internet.

      There is good syntax here because the author breaks his thoughts into staccato short sentences. The repetitiveness of the sentences, each explaining a different activity the author enjoyed on the internet, emphasizes the overwhelming abundance of programs the internet had to offer and when it first came out, how much people appreciated it. The short sentences represent a brain on overdrive discovering new things and wondering what else there is out there that the internet has to offer. It also conveys an excitement to share his discoveries with his friends

    4. You reckon that mobile internet has to be a categorically good thing for the world. Like the printing press. Like the railroad. This exploding net of satellites, cables, servers, modems, and repeaters is nothing short of a Cambrian explosion. Watch communication distribute. Watch the crowd source information—the crowd which can think faster and more accurately than any one human, the crowd which is an incredible asset in times of both danger and celebration. Watch the crowd use this hackery thing called hashtags to track the advance of wildfires. Watch the crowd reproduce the Mona Lisa one pixel at a time from all points of the compass.

      Short sentences compare the mobile internet to other major innovations in a memorable way. Crowd source mentality and the use of hashtag introduces the ideas in a new perspective. Last two sentences illustrates the power of the mobile internet in a meaningful way as the end weighting of wildfires and "all points of the compass" shows the dynamic uses it offers.
