High-Level Language

A computer language in which statements written with English-like syntax correspond to many instructions in assembly language. The advantage of a high-level language is that programs can be written using words, symbols, and commands, rather than arcane codes that, essentially, only a machine can understand. Examples of high-level languages are BASIC and FORTRAN. See also Low-Level Language.
