OpenStep, GNUstep Objective Modula-2 (or ObjM2) is an extension to Modula-2 which follows the Objective-C object model and retains the bracketed Smalltalk message passing syntax introduced in Objective-C. Like Objective-C, Objective Modula-2 is a reflective, object oriented programming language with both static and dynamic typing. It is intended as a safer alternative to Objective-C for Cocoa and GNUstep software development.

'Smalltalk doesn't have "bracketed message passing syntax."'

Well, that's precisely why the Objective-C variant is called bracketed Smalltalk message-passing syntax.

It means Smalltalk message-passing syntax, enclosed in brackets.
