An Ancestor of Taqoz

Hi, perhaps this is interesting for somebody?
I recently stumbled over this article https://dl.forth.com:8443/jfar/vol2/no1/article3.pdf.

It is from 1984 and describes a Forth machine, which has a mixture of microcode words (like cog assembler code) and colon definition words (non-primitives). And it uses the start addresses of codes as their code. Codes are 16bits. So there are some similarities to Taqoz and it's inner interpreter.

    A fantastic find. A pitty not many people write in a style presented in this article these days but I find your APropOs study described in a very similar way. Both a pleasure to read and digest. Thank you.
