Just as a cross-reference re Plattdeutsch: while studying (standard High) German at school, I went to stay with a family in Hamburg, and watched TV play in the local Plattdeutsch. Because of the sentence intonation, I realised I could understand it by thinking it was people from Newcastle-upon-Tyne trying to speak German - must be a shared/inherited influence from Danish.
