Re: What if Lisp was invented by the Japanese?

Actually, about 46% of the world's languages are Subject-Object-Verb.  It's the most common configuration for the world's languages, followed by Subject-Verb-Object (like English and Chinese) at about 44%.

I read somewhere (I can't remember where) that Verb-Subject-Object languages are in some way better (or more convenient?) from a logical perspective (and thus, I imagine, for machine languages).  It's too bad I can't remember where I read that (it may not have been online).
