From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      The first string-handling and pattern-matching
     language, designed in 1957-8 for applications in natural
     language translation.  The user has a workspace organised
     into shelves.  Strings are made of constituents (words),
     accessed by subscript.  A program is a set of rules, each of
     which has a pattern, a replacement and goto another rule.
