Not the languages themselves of course, just the tag, which has 3,672 posts attached and must be the most meta of meta tags. The excerpt reads:
A programming language is an artificial language designed to express computations that can be performed by a machine, particularly a computer.
I don't see much point in a tag stating that the question is about a programming language on a site dedicated to... programming.
There are 48 additional tags with programming in the name, some of which may be useful, other's not so much.
Additional ones that should probably be burninated are:
game-programming - 149 posts, This tag is used for questions involving game programming. Before using this tag, consider whether your question would be a better fit for gamedev.stackexchange.com. game-development was burninated, twice.
programming-techniques - 73 posts, no wiki. That'd be everything then.
programming-paradigms - 69 posts, no wiki. A paradigm is a typical pattern, i.e. a canonical example, so hopefully everything.
pair-programming - 66 posts, Pair Programming is an agile software development technique in which two programmers work together at one work station. I can't imagine there are any code problems specifically related to working in pairs.
programming-pearls - 32 posts, Programming pearls are unique problems or solutions that might puzzle a programmer, they have grown from real problems that have irritated real programmers, just as natural pearls grow from grains of sand that irritate oysters. The excerpt says it all...
programming-fundamentals - 28 posts, no wiki. Seems to be used as a synonym for "I think this might be an easy question"?
- programming-competitions - 48 posts, no wiki. Either it's a good question or not, the only purpose this might solve is to stop people yelling that the OP is cheating, but if the OP is actually cheating and uses the tag I don't see what difference it makes.
- programming-tools - 4 posts, no wiki. Please can someone help :-(, also if a few people want to take a close/delete run at the last 16 project-management-tools questions that'd be nice!
There are a load more but I'm not the person to tell whether they might be useful or not.
network-programming, functional-programming, metaprogramming, dynamic-programming, kernel-programming, gpu-programming, template-meta-programming, generic-programming, prototype-programming, linear-programming, reactive-programming, concurrent-programming, genetic-programming, procedural-programming, constraint-programming, logic-programming, defensive-programming, literate-programming, imperative-programming, idl-programming-language, tacit-programming, declarative-programming, event-based-programming, polyglot-programming, hardware-programming, structured-programming, generative-programming, distributed-programming, integer-programming, rmo-programming, intentional-programming, interrogative-programming, multi-stage-programming
Though I'm not sure I don't really see the need for these:
extreme-programming - 84 posts, Extreme programming is a Software Development Methodology from the '90s, nowadays considered a subclass of Agile Programming. It involves typical features such as pair programming, YAGNI, and very iterative programming. ????
database-programming. I know that other tags completely cover this one so I don't see why it's needed.
The following could be merged:
