1. Everywhere in syntax.el, please change "upto" to "up to".
(Not English.)
2. In doc strings of `syntax-propertize-function' and
`syntax-propertize-extend-region-functions': Please describe
START and END: their meanings and possible values (type).
Likewise NEW-START and NEW-END.
3. IN doc string of `syntax-propertize-rules':
"if SYNTAX has the form (prog1 EXP . EXPS) then the value
 returned by EXP will be applied to the buffer before running
 EXPS and if EXP is a string it is also converted with
Need descriptions of what EXP and EXPs are: meanings and possible values
4. Doc string of `syntax-propertize-via-font-lock':
"Propertize for syntax in START..END using font-lock syntax..."
There are no parameters START, END.  Please describe them and
relate them to the function.
5. Doc string of `syntax-propertize': It would be clearer if POS were
described (e.g. as a buffer position).  Same thing elsewhere that the meaning
might not be obvious.  (Calling it POSITION would pretty much obviate the need
for a description.)
6. Doc string of `syntax-ppss-cache': Describe POS and PPSS.
7. Doc string of `syntax-ppss-last': Describe LAST-POS and LAST-PPSS.
8. Doc string of `syntax-ppss-flush-cache': Describe parameter IGNORED.
