I suspect this is because the guys who create a new language learned
programming in another language. So when they create a new language, to
some extent, they pattern it after what they've learned elsewhere. And
generally, there are typical ways that humans think about accomplishing
programming tasks, which are reflected in the way that humans design
programming languages.
