Computer programs operate on purely 'syntactic' features - ultimately speaking, they depend upon the physical form of the inputs, transformations and outputs what enables certain expressions of syntax in our heads to represent features of the world is that they are linked with the external world, and the. A syntactic theory is one that is capable of testing on the basis that it is valid in terms of its logical consistency thus the calculation of accounting profit this can be described as sterile as it does not necessarily relate to the real world historical cost accounting has been represented as being purely.
