Domain-specific languages (DSLs) can be viewed from both a programming language and a software architecture perspective. The goal of this paper is to relate the two viewpoints. In particular, we demonstrate that DSLs can be constructed using an existing formal methodology for developing general purpose languages (GPLs) while expressing software architecture concerns.
