    315 The most likely explanation is that, since exceptions
    316 are rarely considered to be the common case, the more optimized languages
    317 make that case expensive to improve other cases.
     314The most likely explination is that,
     315the generally faster languages have made ``common cases fast" at the expense
     316of the rarer cases. Since exceptions are considered rare, they are made
     317expensive to help speed up common actions, such as entering and leaving try
     318statements.
     319Python on the other hand, while generally slower than the other languages,
     320uses exceptions more and has not scarified their performance.
    318321In addition, languages with high-level representations have a much
    319322easier time scanning the stack as there is less to decode.
