The latest time I actually "lived" in Germany (as opposed to visiting) was around 1969-70. Satu is our Griot of Matters Germanic, and I'm no contender for that role. At this point in life, I'm lucky to be able to read a German menu.
One thing tho - I remember Low German as being called "Plattdeutsch" as opposed to "Niederdeutsch". "Platt" means "flat" or "level" and I've always assumed it was descriptive of the flat lowlands of northern Germany where originated.
