Writing about web pagehttp://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_7697000/7697762.stmJust heard this very interesting feature on The Today Programme. Thetitle of the book is Eunoia, the shortest word in English containing allfive vowels. And each chapter only contains words with one vowel – soone chapter for each vowel.What I found very interesting was how the author Christian Bokwrote/composed the book: starting from the dictionary, finding all theuni-vowel words (regular expressions?), classifying the words bysyntactic family, and then finally bringing the semantics to build thesentences. This seems much closer to how we used to write programs inthe 80s, which has been replaced by a more semantics->syntax directionwhich is espoused now, starting from specifications and then finallygetting the low-level programs, using compilers, etc.It took 7 years for Bok to write Eunoia, and similarly it takes a longtime to write realistic low-level programs bottom-up. But in the sameway that this book seems like a fantastic work of art, I can admire anelegant low-level program which does what it says on the tin.I have a vested interest in uni-vowel words, considering (the shortenedform of) my name.
