I Need a Word Here

Is "declarativeness" an acceptable word? Doesn't sound very good, doesn't roll off the tongue. Where do you put the stress?

"Declarativity" is easier to say. So let's use that.

The concept is useful, though. It could be phrased as "level of declarative expressivity". Or "aggregate expressivity of available declarative features". Etcetera.


Well, Google seems to bear this out:

Declarativity: About 24,100 results
Declarativeness: About 10,600 results


Declaration-oriented? Declaration-prone? Declaration-expressive?
