The syntax is substantially simplified in several ways without losing
or changing content -- as follows: (1) certain constraints are stated
explicitly rather than through a duplication or
proliferation of phrase structure rules, (2) EBNF is used, thus
substantially cutting down on the number of auxiliary or extraneous
rules and non-terminals.
The changes made in the 1999 and 2010 editions of the language are
highlighted respectively in green and cyan.
As mentioned the write-up, I will not offer any guarantee of
compatibility with any portions of the relevant standards that are not
already freely available and differ from what is.
In time, more details will be presented in the morphemic (i.e.
"lexical") and pre-processing layers.
