Did you try a search? There are links out there.

But it's true that a search will only get you so far. I think what we don't
have enough is idiomatic English coupled to idiomatic Haskell.

It's like a proof/program of a proposition in Euclidean geometry. One just
gets it visually and doesn't really bother with verbalizing on the tongue.

Provide a code fragment here, and folks will help you with it.
