    1. mars. One parameter, whose positive value is instantiated in languages with rich agreement such as Italian and Spanish, is the Null Pronoun Parameter, in which the null subject (i.e., pro) is identified through agreement. Another parameter, whose positive value is instantiated in languages without agreement such as Chinese and Japanese, is the Discourse Oriented Parameter (DOP). Such discourse-oriented languages allow null arguments in both subject and object positions, and the null argument is identified by a discourse topic or through co-indexation with a c-commanding nominal. A language such as English instantiates the negative value with respect to both the DOP and the Null Pronoun Parame

    1. first sighting: use of superscripts like this

      I like it. Nice and concise and understandable.

      • s¹  critical
      • s²  important
      • s³  nice to have
      • s⁴  low
      • s⁵  inconvenient

      But in other cases, the abbreviation is quite unclear and ambiguity:

      Like, what does "pr" mean in these cases?

      priority? Doubt it.

      • pr¹  chore
      • pr²  docs
      • pr³  feature
      • pr⁴  fix
      • pr⁵  performance
      • pr⁶  refactor
      • pr⁷  style

      Pull Request? Doubt it. But maybe?

      For axes that are quantifiable, like severity, using a number makes sense. But what benefit is there in including a number in these (platform?) labels?:

      • p¹ ⋅ browser
      • p² ⋅ linux
      • p³ ⋅ mac
      • p⁴ ⋅ windows

      I think this would have been better and clearer (in that fewer people would be like huh? and wonder what it means):

      • platform: browser
      • platform: linux
      • platform: mac
      • platform: windows
