30 Language

30.1 Hebrew

30.1.1 Verb can precede subject

Hebrew is a verb driven language where it is possible to place the verb before the subject doing the action. The name of G-d being a verb suggests that the verb is superiour that the action defines the object. Sentences are shorter with less clauses and phrases and can be distinguished by the next verb; so ancient Hebrew did not need the period. The implication is that activity becomes important while the subject/object are subordinate.

30.2 English

30.2.1 Subject verb object

English is intuitive in that the subject precedes the verb that precedes the object. This requires punctuation to distinguish phrases within the sentence and their closest associations. This is the most intuitive structure.

30.3 Korean

30.3.1 Stack based language

Korean is a stack-based language where subject and object precede the verb. An implication of this structure is that association can be implied by proximity without the need for punctuation. Korean encourages the recognition of all nouns before activity. The implication is that subject/object respect and order and placement become significant.
