Yes Latin is a dead language. THANK GOD! Sanctus means today exactly what it mean 1500 years ago. THANK GOD! Do you want the meanings of Christ's words to change?You had me until the end.

Latin is no longer the native language of any particular place and as such is not a developing language like the other modern languages. All the same, it is an established fact that Latin is the root for more popular languages used today. Among the various reasons leading to Latin becoming a dead language, is the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of other powers. When the Roman Empire dissolved, it saw the emergence of other languages known as the Romance languages. These languages were primarily influenced by Roman and include French, Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese and Italian languages. Thereafter Latin retained its use as a church language and stopped being used as an everyday language.I’ll start off by saying that Latin is a dead language. Dead, deceased, passed away, no more, finished, gone. You’ll probably never have an entire conversation in Latin, ever. And you wanna know why? (unless you do, in that case: woops)"Latin is a dead language, it's plain enough to see. It killed off all the Romans, and now it's killing me." Latin and Latin roots are, however, widely used in various western languages, and is particularly significant in "legalese". Would it not have been eminently more practical to include Latin, rather than Klingon?Last time I checked, a university was supposed to be a stimulatingenvironment for intellectual growth. . . . I would like to respond toUrsula Moore's comment by saying, "Latin is a DEAD language. Wheredid you get the idea that a dead language was going to help you withyour major or career?" . . . .
