well, actually, it isn't all english. i mean, the ones you cite are all derived from english, at least, but "grep" certainly isn't, and i don't think "polymorphism" is used to mean anything really recognizable as what we use it to mean.
programmers just make more sense to each other than we do to "people". but i digress, i'm sure. probably comes from being unemployed so long.

    Actually, 'grep' is, in fact, derived from English: "Globally search for the Regular Expression and Print".
