The second consonant shift is responsible for High German forms like "Pfeffer", "Zeit", and "machen", where a Low Saxon dialect would have "P�per", "Tiet", and "maken", or something similar.Also known as Low German or Plattdeutsch. A group of dialects spoken traditionally over much of northern Germany and in parts of the Netherlands and southern Denmark, as well as by some immigrant communities elsewhere (mostly North America).
