re: PHP is uniquely bad in that the people behind it continuously make bad choices in designing the language. T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM has existed since ...

Oh yes. That and more.

On a sidenote I thought that T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM was fixed in recent versions but it seems that it was actually not. 🤦

I'm surprised there is no other languages in the error messages though

To be honest, I like this historic, cultural error message. Even though it should be accompanied by a clearer error message. It is a simple error and explained when searched for at nauseam. That being said, I would never go back to PHP after having switched to Node.js with Typescript.
