Comparative Programming Languages
Here is an interesting site.

http://merd.sourceforge.net/pixel/language-study/syntax-across-languages/

It looks at languages from a syntax and functionality aspect.

Uh, spotted a few quirks:

1. "if case sensitive, what is the standard way for scrunching together 
multiple words"
...
"CamelCase	C#, E, Haskell, Java, JavaScript, Pascal, Smalltalk, Tcl"

That isn't CamelCase.  This is camelCase.  Anyway, in Java at least, 
it's LikeThis for classes and likeThis for members, local variables and 
the like.

2. "assignment"
...
"is	Prolog"

Prolog doesn't have assignment as such.  Though there's a superficial 
resemblance in this instance....

3. It seems to use "declaration" to mean multiple things.
