The question is: what makes a language a language? That is what makes me wonder... I mean I had a lot about calculus and logic and this stuff here. But this is just math. Not a language... A language and Math are two different things. They have quite nothing in common.

One thing that makes them very different is: Math is exact, Languages are per se vague.


Ok it's been a while but perhaps you can find a copy of "the dragon book" called that due to the cover having a picture of a dragon.

it is (or was) the "standard" text book to teach compiler theory.

if you read that book you will see that there is a mathimatic basis for parsing and processing languages.

natural languages are very much harder than c# etc...
