One unique aspect of Perl is the fact that it was designed by a linguist. Every step in the language's development has been guided by a desire to make it not only efficient for computers, but natural for humans. Tagmemics is the theory of linguistics that has had the most influence on Larry Wall, from the earliest stages of the language to the current development of Perl 6.
