Not at all.

I was explaining the article to my wife earlier today. She (something of
a language purist) thought "if (..)  {..} else {..}" should be "if
(..) {..} or else {...}".

I think she got the "otherwise" joke.

BTW, if a declarative language such as PHP and its many predecessors
were Japanese, how would a structure such as "if (..) {..} else {..}" be formed?

We could have a TLUG competition for Japanese-complaint computer language
