No, YOU don't understand.
It's not two languages, one based on Dutch and one based on German;
it's one language, just two different ways of spelling it.
As I said before these two villages are 4km apart, both men can
understand each others' speech very clearly because it is IDENTICAL.
The only difference is the way they spell their languages, which can
easily be converted.

Yet you're telling them they don't. That's crazy.
With these two men, the only issue would be spelling, which is very
easy to remedy as has been proven with zh, sr, ks, and (attempted) en.
Here you prove yet again that you do not understand it. Spelling between
a language based on Dutch and a language based on German differ for miles.
