My brother John: "It would be really annoying listening to programmers who are also linguists; they'd just argue about semantics all the time."
My brother Steve, being unintentionally meta: "Programmers *are* linguists."
As a programmer, I beg to differ: I do not argue about semantics. I just always choose to adopt the unintended one.
@cwebber And semanticists who dabble in programming?
