I can has English?  :)

If the first large table is any indication, though, we may need to  
define "inconsistent".  C syntax shown there is quite consistent;  
what it isn't, is designed to keep humans from making certain kinds  
of mistakes.  I'm rather mixed on that goal:  on the one hand, C does  
attract certain errors due to its syntax, but on the other, a  
language designed to coddle the programmer also tends to keep the  
programmer from doing useful things.  (What's the last practical  
application you've seen in Logo?  Or un-extended Pascal?)
