I'm busy, but discussion readers will know that other links have been posted here (please, when Ehud comes back, all apply to be contributing editors!).

Meantime, a comment about expert shells being declarative led me to Very High Level Languages. As far as I can see from a search of the 'net the term peaked around 1993 with a conference on the subject and it seems there were papaers claiming the title for languages I thought were "just" scripting languages. So what are VHLLs? The link above is the best I could find, but it seems to be aimed at people who think anything newer than C is bleeding edge technology....

How about SETL?

Perhaps this is a better link.

Notice the description of Ada/ED: an executable semantic model. This is close to the interpreters based approach of EOPL ('...both formal and executable...denotational semantics in a concrete way.)
