 for ''high-level language''
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  high-level language
     (HLL) A programming language which provides some level of
     abstraction above assembly language.  These normally use
     statements consisting of English-like keywords such as "FOR",
     "PRINT" or "GOTO", where each statement corresponds to several
     machine language instructions.  It is much easier to program
     in a high-level language than in assembly language though
     the efficiency of execution depends on how good the compiler
     or interpreter is at optimising the program.
     Rarely, the variants "{VHLL" and "{MLL}" are found.
     See also languages of choice, generation.
