    141141        The compilation performance improvements have all been experimentally validated with a new prototype system that encapsulates the key aspects of the \CFA{} language; this prototype is a promising basis for future research and a technical contribution of this work.

     143        \CFA{}, extended and refined in this thesis, presents both an independently interesting combination of language features and a comprehensive approach to the modernization of C.
     144        This work demonstrates the hitherto unproven practical viability of the \CFA{} language design, and provides a number of useful tools to implementors of other languages.

    151154This thesis would not exist in the form it does without the mentorship of my advisor, Peter Buhr, who has ably led the \CFA{} team while giving me both the advantage of his decades of experience and the freedom to follow my own interests.

    153 My work on \CFA{} does not exist in a vaccuum, and it has been a pleasure and a privilege to collaborate with the members of the \CFA{} team: Andrew Beach, Richard Bilson, Michael Brooks, Bryan Chan, Thierry Delisle, Glen Ditchfield, Brice Dobry, Rob Schluntz, and others.

    154157I gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the National Science and Engineering Council of Canada and Huawei Ltd.\ for this project.
    155158I would also like to thank of my thesis committee, Werner Dietl, Doug Lea, Ond\v{r}ej Lhot\a'ak, and Gregor Richards, for the time and effort they have invested in providing constructive feedback to refine this work.
    156159I am indebted to Peter van Beek and Ian Munro for their algorithmic expertise and willingness to share their time with me.
    157 I have far too many colleagues in the Programming Languages Group and School of Computer Science to name, but I deeply appreciate their camaradarie; specifically with regard to the production of this thesis, I would like to thank Nathan Fish for recommending my writing soundtrack, and Sharon Choy for her unfailing supply of encouraging rabbit animations.

    159162Finally, to all my friends and family who have supported me and made Kitchener-Waterloo home these past seven years, thank you, I could not have done it without you; most especially, Christina Moss, you are the best of wives and best of women, your support has kept me going through the ups and downs of research, and your partnership is key to all my successes.
