"2 + 2 = 4" is a sentence: Two plus two equals four.
Store variable (2) in register 1. Store variable (2) in register 2.
Add register 1 to register 2. Store the result in register 3.
These are also sentences. They are no different from the words
we use every day and the memes that comprise our spoken language.
They just happen to be written in a different format.
