Computer languages encapsulate precise physical concepts, english language encapsulates wide range communication.

It is never the language describing a problem that is the issue it is describing the process in terms of a physical concept the CPU can execute as code blocks.

For perspective you could write a book claiming all you need is a screwdriver, spanner and hammer as tools and you can fix anything. Whilst you can probably tackle a vast range of repairs there are jobs that require highly specialized tools that you simply couldn't do. Plain English Programming falls into the same fallacy you conceive situations it might work but you have to close your eyes to the situations it clearly won't.

I suspect the only way to really go after a real concept of english language programming would be via AI and if you went that path specific jargon would be less verbose, clearer and not prone to stupid English language nuances. Take any scientific field the first thing we generally have to do is butcher English into a series of defined jargon and acronyms so we can all agree on what is being said. Read any science journal or book and it isn't english a layman would recognize you need to know what all the jargon and acronyms mean. So I put the chances of any serious programming in english language at close to zero because we can't even do it with science.
In vino veritas
