Thats the feedback from an outsider (alien from other planet)

I think what I call operators seem to correspond to keywords in the new 
document

But such keywords as listed in the new spec seem to have some new types


I ll just take it 'as is' for the moment, will investigate later, thanks

pdm

    NEW
Keywords:

      BASE SELECT ORDER BY FROM GRAPH STR isURI
      PREFIX CONSTRUCT LIMIT FROM NAMED OPTIONAL LANG isIRI
        DESCRIBE OFFSET WHERE UNION LANGMATCHES isLITERAL
        ASK DISTINCT   FILTER DATATYPE REGEX
          REDUCED   a BOUND true
                sameTERM false

OLD

*           PREFIX — specification of a name for a URI (like RDQL’s USING).

*           SELECT — returns all or some of the variables bound in the WHERE 
clause.

*           CONSTRUCT — returns a RDF graph with all or some of the variable 
bindings.

*           DESCRIBE — returns a description of the resources found.

*           ASK — returns whether a query pattern matches or not.

*           WHERE — list, i.e. conjunction, of query (triple or graph) 
patterns.

*           OPTIONAL — list, i.e. conjunction, of optional (triple or graph) 
patterns.

*           AND — boolean expression (the filter to be applied to the 
result).[1]
