Is the 'less', 'more' and 'too few' referring to amounts of the same thing? Is it amounts of people? Objects? Animals? Ideas?
Would disaster= death? General destruction? Natural disaster?

Talking in a specific situation relevant? No.Talking vs. remaining silent relevant? Yes.Commenting on something relevant?Yes-ish. Answering something relevant? Yes-ish.

Age of the speaker relevant? No.

Does this puzzle work for only one specific language? Some languages? All languages? This one.

Grammar relevant? Foreign words relevant? Complexity of speech relevant? No to these.

Written language relevant as well?Yes.

***Spoiler***
I wasn't going for anything specific, just the general concept of words. Often when people say more than less, they tend to put their foot in their mouth. But in instructions and when dealing with dangerous materials, too few words could invite a disaster to happen.
Thanks to 0815 for the kill, all you for your participation. I will get back to you with a new puzzle whan I think of a good one.
