Just like you parse a sentence when you read it by noticing the spaces defining where words are. And the commas separating sections of a sentence, and periods/capitalization separating the sentences, in-sentence capitalization signaling proper nouns, etc. All of those are *technically* unnecessary too, but notice how much harder it is to read (ie, "parse") when they're absent.



one doesn't parse a sentence when one reads it, one translates a sentence into images; why do you compare native speech sentences with a programming language statements?
