How are you using "Low" and "High" here? To refer to geographic
elevation (as in Low German = spoken on the flat plains of the north,
High German = spoken in the mountains of the south)? Or something more
like JBR's Lesson One of SF Xenolinguistics, perhaps? (
http://www.xibalba.demon.co.uk/jbr/lingo.html#s2 )

What's the difference between the Low/High and the Deep/Upper classifications?

Cheers,
Philip
