Read "A programming language", where APL came from - https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Language-Kenneth-Iverson/... - you might get more understanding why it is the way it is.

It is the mathematical notation, put into, as Dijkstra expressed, "technologies of the past", completed (to be Turing-complete) and made executable.

At least, I think, this is the basic idea.
