HLL High Level Language
The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003):

HLL /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.
The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018):

high-level language HLL (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. (1994-12-07)
