A framework for thinking about domain-specific languages (DSLs) divides them into internal DSLs, external DSLs, and language workbenches. In all cases, it's important to have an explicit semantic model so that they form a veneer over an underlying library. DSLs are valuable for increasing programmer productivity and improving communication with domain experts.
