Abstract A scientific approach to language design involves the exhaustive analysis of the demands of one of the criteria for language design and or assessment. G is designed on the sole criterion of support for data abstraction, which leads to the adoption of the applicative or functional model. As well as a full complement of standard data types and operations, G emphasises tools for: type definition; type checking; function argument and list types; function types; data structure types; generic types; generic functions; and generic function types. Comparative analysis shows that the benefits of our simple and general structure justify the need for dynamic type checking.
