My first advice would then be to avoid making yet another language. If
you really want to make one, invest in learning parsing techniques,
and more importantly semantic related techniques (like transforming
your abstract syntax tree into something more suitable to
evaluation..., bytecode interpreters, etc...)


Why don't you want to reuse (or extend) existing language
specifications or implementations?
