embedded language

embedded language

A programming language that is included in an application. Examples of embedded languages are VBA for Microsoft applications and various versions of LISP in programs such as Emacs and AutoCAD. An embedded language is not to be confused with programming languages used in "embedded systems." An embedded "language" is an extension to an application in order to add more flexibility than is inherently built into the menus. An embedded "system" is hardware and software built into an automobile, robot, toy or myriad other devices (see embedded system).

Embedded language development is deservedly receiving much attention in more recent times (Arkoudis & Starfield, 2007; Crosling & Wilson, 2005; Evans, 2009; Harris & Ashton, 2011), lauded as the best or perhaps most efficient model to reach the greatest number of students.
This model explains code-switching from a minimalist perspective based on an abstract hypothesis regarding the two languages participating in code-switching; one language is called the 'matrix language', the language which "the mixed sentence is coming from", a "base language" (see Hasselmo 1961:41 and Joshi: 1981), and the other participating language is the 'embedded language' at three different levels i.e.
In bilingual switching, the dominant language is called the Matrix Language, while the non-dominant language is the Embedded Language (Myers-Scotton, 1993).
As embedded software systems become increasingly complex, companies are beginning to consider C++, rather than C, as their embedded language of choice and dealing with technologies that allow them to abstract away from the C and assembler-level code.
Each week specifies a theme with embedded language concepts, vocabulary words, phonemic awareness skills, and applicable social skills.
For six weeks, both the embedded language group and the explicit language group were instructed over the same content (i.e., the same language arts skills), but used different instructional techniques for approximately 15-20 minutes four days a week during the assigned regular language arts period.
An embedded language (EL) may be inserted within this constituent only to the extent that it follows the grammar of the matrix language (ML).
According to this approach CS is explained as the insertion of elements from one language (the embedded language, EL), into grammatical frames set by the other language (the matrix language, ML).
While other types of system morpheme may come from the embedded language (EL), in fact, almost all -- not just those required by the system-morpheme principle -- come from the matrix language.
The prestigious IEEE Spectrum programming languages ranking for 2014, being a more technical approach, comprises also the category of embedded languages (such as for example Assembly or Arduino).
