Which of these have syntax

@jordyd I voted for all four but I'm least confident in musical notation. mathematical notation is marginal too, but I think anything with order of operations must as-such have some level of syntactic structure.

@byttyrs I would argue that mathematical notation has approximately as much syntax as programming languages, tho it's in an odd position because it's not nearly as formal as for programming languages and tends to be more fluid. It also has a "two dimensional" component to it, which to me is syntactic insofar as it can be translated into a "flat" version which ticks all the boxes of a formal syntax. But this is all like, from a CS perspective
