Language death

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Language death is a language no longer being used as a first language (also called mother language or native language) or a second language and so it becomes an extinct language. It should not be confused with a dead language, such as Latin, which still is still spoken as a second language.

Language revival, a dead language becoming a living language again, has only one widely-known example, Hebrew.
