comment Is there any programming language(s) which has mathematical number types?
As I said the question stemmed from curiosity when I was thinking of a programming languages for educational purposes for a non-programmer. Just seeing if there are really languages that high level. I'm not really adamant on it.

comment Is there any programming language(s) which has mathematical number types?
delnan, thanks for answering. I do realise numeric type has to have a size and operating on numbers depends on bit-ness of the number. For me size is not a requirement, let it have an upper cut off 2 ^ 32 or 2 ^ 64. So I wasn't exactly after arbitrary precision rational numbers or so. Just asking if there are computer languages which by default names its numeric types like in the mathematical world, and not int64, double, float etc which sound technical.

comment What natural language has the advantage when it comes to programming?
I have heard Sanskrit is meant to be the most like a computer language according to some study, you can google it. I am not sure how true that can be but since Sanskrit never took off as a mainstream spoken language and also since it was used among academia for technical studies of the time it's probable it's unlike the natural spoken languages of today. Turkish sounds very sweet to my ears (just aurally) but if it all it and Sanskrit talk like programming languages boy that would be very boring. The last thing I want to hear when asked: "is it boy or girl?" is "yes".

comment Property proper naming to represent string starting with number
This is very much a language restriction, not a clr one. You can emit il for numeric property or class names.
