Spry Language
Spry is a programming language primarily inspired by Smalltalk/Rebol/Lisp/JavaScript/Forth and Nim.

Spry borrows homoiconicity from Rebol and Lisp, free form syntax from Forth and Rebol, the word of different types from Rebol, good data structure literal support from JavaScript and the general coding experience and style from Smalltalk. It also has a few ideas of its own, like an interesting argument passing mechanism and a relatively novel take on OO.
