If we can use syntax like: “put 3 into x” instead of “x=3”, why not try to carry through the entire system with the same philosophy and keep the “jargony” things as minimized as possible.

As I am one of the "everybodys" who tried to build you a golden bridge you didn't use, here another one.

There is in the LC Preferences/ Tab General at top an option
"Property labels are:"
o Description of option
X Name of LiveCode property

If you choose to prefer "Description of option" then you'll get in the Property Inspector "Text Fill" instead of "foreGroundColor".


By the way "put 3 into x" is logically correct, x=3 not, because it is an equation, which is equivalent to 3=x ...
