Word is a language by User:PuzzleHunter84 that takes the form of sentences. It is stack-based and has 18 variables (i-z).

Language

Each of the letters of the alphabet is assigned one of twelve instructions (thirteen including the nop instruction). The letters a-m and n-z use the same instructions. The period also has an instruction and the space just separates words. The words are taken letter by letter separately in alphabetical order and the actual order they occur in the word is not actually important, i.e. art, tar, rat, atr, rta, and tra are all the same.
