I appreciated your post :)
I'm particularly interested in answering (better, just trying to) this question:
Do language affects intellicenge?
I spent some time teaching programming, and I always started saying to the class: "Solve the problem using pseudo-code or other formalism, then write program. Writing the program is merely a linguistic matter."
But I'm not truly convinced :)
From this point of view, Perl is very interesting.
If you're interested in languages, natural and artificial, I suggest reading Steven Pinker, "L'istinto del linguaggio". Sorry, I don't know original title: it could be something like "Language Instinct".
