  Thanks Berwin. You're correct in that I meant the R Language 
Definition. Well, it may be a draft but I read it for the first time a 
few months ago and
it was very enlightening so, whether it's a draft or not, I highly 
recommend it. (  but not for total beginners. The  R-intro is better for 
a more gentle introduction ).
