    I hate how rust is dyslexic. A programming language is designed to be human readable yet everything in rust is abbreviated. As if most programming time is lost on typing a few extra letters even if it is a million times, it is not.

      They use those abbreviations because Rust draws a lot of influence from functional programming languages in academic circles, which in turn developed those abbreviations as a keyboard-friendly alternative to the symbol-heavy mathematical representations they were used to.

      (Which is where you get jokes about LISP being so un-fun that it actually named its "define function" macro defun.)

      Your complaint is analogous to Pascal and BASIC programmers complaining about how Java, JavaScript, and all the other languages with C-inspired syntax use { and } rather than friendly "begin" and "end" block delimiters.
