Defining Syntax

  • Ellis Horowitz

Abstract

Every language is based upon an alphabet of characters. The English alphabet for example contains 26 letters whose capitals are written

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

The digits are generally written in Aramaic form

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

The character set for a programming language typically begins with these 36 characters.
