Latin philology and language

Latin (ˈlætɪn/; Latin: lingua latīna; IPA: ˈlɪŋɡʷa laˈtiːna) is an Italic language originally spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome. Along with most European languages, it is a descendant of the ancient Proto-Indo-European language. It originated in the Italian peninsula. Although it is considered a dead language, many students, scholars, and members of the Christian clergy speak it fluently, and it is still taught in some primary and secondary and many post-secondary educational institutions around the world. Recently, there has been some revival of interest in American schools.
