                 subtree crossover, as traditionally used, does not
                 usefully combine genetic information from both parents,
                 but plays the role of macromutation instead. The
                 following paper proposes and investigates the effects
                 of a different type of crossover, Forth crossover,
                 inspired by the eponymous programming language. Using
                 the mechanism of Headless Chicken Crossover in a series
                 of experiments, it is argued that Forth crossover is
                 strictly different from, and in the experiments
                 performed, better than both subtree crossover and
