  • If the language executes by means of using a stack of instructions, it's a Stack-Oriented Programming Language.


    The CLR does this, mostly, for it's execution - however, that's an implementation detail, and not necessarily required via the CLS specification.  The CLS specification doesn't provide implementation requirements for how IL is interpreted.
