I'm rather confused.

Reading this thread, I understood the reasons which would raise objections
with regards to the use of {maH Hoch}. And in particular, how the {maH
Hoch} violates the accord rule.

But I can't understand which rule is violated by {Hoch maH}. Is it
ungrammatical or wrong ? And if yes, how ? Reading this thread, I can't
understand how its use could be considered wrong.

Don't misunderstand me; I'm not arguing just to argue. I sincerely can't
understand how the {Hoch maH} could be considered wrong.
