Throughout the history of computers, there has been a proliferation of new programming languages. Programmers have a variety of language choices for application or system development. Many languages have differing constructs, syntax rules, and development environments, which impede the productivity of programmers using a diverse language set. With the renewed interest in Domain Specific Languages (DSL), we argue that further emphasis should be put on common core constructs and syntax during the design and evaluation of a new language. We believe common base languages will improve programmer productivity, and allow the development of a strong supporting ecosystem of programming systems.
