 ENGLISH n. The source code for a program, which may be in any
       language, as opposed to BINARY. Usage: slightly obsolete, used mostly
       by old-time hackers, though recognizable in context. At MIT, directory
       SYSENG is where the "English" for system programs is kept,
       and SYSBIN, the binaries. SAIL has many such directories, but the
       canonical one is [CSP,SYS].
