This paper reviews the current state of programming language standards activities with respect to the anomalies which exist between the various published and proposed standards for FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/I and BASIC. Proposals are made for the inclusion of formalisms within future standards and the extension of the standards to include additional items such as error conditions and documentation.
