I can say the same thing about Sanskrit. It's almost dead; the only people who use it are academic researchers. It's sad really, to see all the great and ancient languages of the world dwindle and slowly disapper.

Latin will survive, but so many other languages are gone or disappearing. That's sad. Each language reflects the unique way in which its speakers see the world.
