Not quite as close to English as this[^].
here’s a program fragment in my favourite high-level language, Inform7:
Overlying relates one thing to various things. The verb to overlie (it overlies, they overlie, it is overlying) implies the overlying relation. 
 
The jacket overlies the shirt. The shoes overlie the socks. The slacks overlie the undershorts. The shirt overlies the undershirt.
 
Before wearing something when something (called the impediment) which overlies the noun is worn by the player: try taking off the impediment; if the player is wearing the impediment, stop the action.
This is part of the source code of a game. [When In Rome 1: Accounting For Taste[^] by Emily Short.] Specifically, this is the code that adds a rule to the game that describes what happens when a player attempts to put on a pair of socks while wearing shoes.




"These people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which I joined."
