I have used "the R statistical computing environment".
No-one has ever asked me to change it, but maybe someone else has something
Hope this helps,

Subject: [R] R FAQ 2.8
[thanks to everyone for advice on Recall() and sapply()]
The R FAQ section 2.8 discusses how to cite R in publications, but does
not (AFAICS) tell
me how to describe R in a sentence.
To wit, in my latest paper (destined for Rnews) one sentence reads:
"The R programming language (3) has been applied . . ."
where reference (3) is R Core 2004.
Now, the referee has pointed out that the expression "R computer
language" is not
to be encouraged, as R is an implementation of the S language.
How would the List rephrase my sentence above?
I also use the phrase "R code", which the referee flags for rewording
grounds to the above).
Any suggestions for this?
