Better, yes, but still too localized to me.

@Joris: Is not just a title problem. But yes, it can be improved. If half dozen of active members have to improve every question, including the ones which these members doesn't have interest or background to touch it, we, these members need to be paid :-) The whole community is responsible to quality. When Mark, Walter and I can't improve the question and no one improved it, even the OP, we can only close it. Anyway closing is not a definitive action, it's not the end of world ;-)

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
@cavalera: Exactly. It's just a small set of symbols, what's the difference if they are long or short? We agreed.

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
For me is undebatable that the symbol names must be meaningful. Symbol names is about the problem domain. Language syntax is lesser important. People who complain about Perl syntax is not Perl programmer :-) I don't like Perl, but the syntax is not the problem.

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
I agree with the first paragraph of Robert's answer. I see no problem with abbreviated syntax in any paradigm. Pls, IMO, []'s, :-) are understandable as func, def, int, var, cons are. Personally I can understand better a good code in C than a good code in C++ (using the C++ style, of course). Sometimes less is more. No, C++ syntax is not the problem, perhaps the semantics, but certainly the style produces bigger and hidden code and I need to navigate a lot to understand the code. Language syntax is domain of every programmer. Problem domain isn't. That's about what Martin Fowler is saying.

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
Really? Java seems English? For me none programming language seems English. Programming languages has English words, nothing more. Some are closer than others but I can't see the @nayan example as plain English: s.indexOf(i). For me, a programmer, this is equally understandable, for good or for bad, as s[i] and I read in same way. For a non-programmer AFIK the first syntax is equally confuse as the second syntax. Actually a syntax with underscript index can't be understandable for most people. Matrices is a concept barely known outside exact sciences.

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
I never met a non-programmer that barely understand a program. Good example for your argument although I disagree with all assumptions of the syntax is the big problem of understandability of code. Algorithms and variables/functions names is the opposite.
