Abstract

We reflect on our experiences from work on the design and semantic underpinnings of Extended ML, a specification language which supports the specification and formal development, of Standard ML programs. Our aim is to isolate problems and issues that are intrinsic to the general enterprise of designing a specification language for use with a given programming language. Consequently the lessons learned go far beyond our original aim of designing a specification language for ML.
