Does anyone have a reference to a tutorial or explanation of how a
modern language is designed; I'm specifically thinking of application
specific languages but pointers to discussions about designing general
purpose languages are welcome.


I have seen a lot of discussion about the compilers for languages, and
a number of small iterative improvements on languages (or
non-improvements as the ALGOL68 detractors would state), but I haven't
seen a nice essay on how a major delta to a language would be created.


Thanks,
Kevin
