I noitced that in the canon examples, the {Hoch} at the end describes
beings capable of language.

Can i safely assume, that depending on context, the {Hoch} could
describe inanimate objects as well ?

For example, in a passage where I'm talking about cars, can I say {muD
QIH HochHom} for "almost all the cars damage the atmosphere" ?
(without of course after the {HochHom} adding the {puH Dujmey}.
