Good morning,

Right. I forgot that for example in Aachen they also speak 
Platt, and back at my parents' they also spoke Platt in the 
past -- though both are actually not Low German dialects 
strictly speaking, at least as far as I know. However, it 
struck me as odd to say that a man from Liechtenstein spoke 
Platt, because, as you said, Plattdeutsch is usually 
associated with Low German.

(who now finally has to go to work)
