 for hll
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

   /H?L?L/, n.
      [High-Level Language (as opposed to assembler)] Found primarily in email
      and news rather than speech. Rarely, the variants ?VHLL? and ?MLL? are
      found. VHLL stands for ?Very-High-Level Language? and is used to describe a
      bondage-and-discipline language that the speaker happens to like; Prolog
      and Backus's FP are often called VHLLs. ?MLL? stands for ?Medium-Level
      Language? and is sometimes used half-jokingly to describe C, alluding to
      its ?structured-assembler? image. See also languages of choice.
