I am not trained in Computer Science nor a historian, so all of my assumptions may be wrong and I do not need a scientific paper as an answer. I am just curious.
From what I have read in the past I was under the impression, that on this world's universities lots of computer scientists invent new languages to try out new and fascinating concepts and most of these languages are never recognized by any number of people. I remember to have read that "the only program ever written in many of these languages" was "their own compiler". Or something along these lines... But every once in a while there was a concept that proved to be great and get known and used. Usually not in the academic language that was designed to investigate the new feature but in some "real world" language that profits from the academic origin but is no longer purely academic.
If any of that is true I wonder, whether the "ownership" model has such a parent language (or two or many). Was ownership developped with Rust on Rust or is/was there some this-made-jane-a-phd-lang ? If so, does it deserve to be recognized by the Rust community?
Thank you for all input,
