|How do you change
a programming language? You find out something grandiose,
you make a few articles in a programming magazine and you send a letter
to a group or a consortium to issue this idea to the language. In
the consortium they stick together their heads and finally they decide
if they accept it, or not. If they do, the next compilers will immediately
contain the changes. This takes about a half a year. There are enough
programmers with grandiose ideas, so about each half a year(one year)
you will see this happen. Plus you will see how a compiler is changing
with each and every release. So maybe the core of a programming language
is not changing, but you can be sure that by a “living”
language you will see totally new concepts and commands and possibilities
in each year. If you want to follow the language you have to study
these things. Each year you have to devote some time to study these.
On the contrary the spoken languages are quite constant.
Imagine what do you have to do to change a spoken language. Millions
|are speaking it each day.
Just to let them know some changes, you have to issue that much publication
and make sure each of them reads it what is impossible.
Besides you cannot make a change in a spoken language. More like you
can recognize a change what is happening or you can help people to
speak a little bit more easily. The usual method starts like by the
programming languages. You write articles to an accredited linguistic(language
science) magazine and you write a proposal to the linguistic department
of the academy of your country. They will discuss, discuss, discuss
for years and finally they will decide. (If you are lucky, you still
live this time.) But if they accept it they have to let the rest of
the country know these changes. They issue the changes in a few orders,
what is coming down in the linguistics magazines. But the linguistic
magazines are read by maximum a few thousand people. So they still
have the job to promote all this for years for all the others. Change
the school system, give out books about the new system and more importantly,
change the thinking of all the people.
