Command access.throwaway.connectives Modifier/Access: Verbs
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category Access: Verbs (152)
Description class of Access modifiers which have no effect on command execution.

These modifiers allow use of a syntax closer to a natural, human, language.

These words reside in the md. The normal set includes: "a", "data", "file", "of", "an", "for", "the", "any", "are", "in" and "items".

The list of available throwaway connectives may easily be expanded by copying any one of the above items in the md to new items. This makes tailoring vocabularies to different languages easier.

Any item in the md with "cz" in attribute 1 is a "throwaway" connective.
Syntax
Options
Example
The following example creates new throwaway connectives, 
"displaying", "showing", and "field".

copy md a a a<return>
to:displaying showing field<return> 

After adding the new items, the following sentence is now possible: 

sort the customer file showing the name field<return> 

Where, "the", "file", "showing", and 
"field" are all ignored, but would provide for a more grammatically 
correct sentence and is the same as:

sort customer name
