Latin: dead for some, alive for others
To speak of Latin is to speak of the origin of many things: European culture, the history of Ancient Rome, the Romance languages that we speak today (Spanish, French, Italian, etc.); it is talking about a whole. But who speaks Latin? To speak, what it is to speak, how is Spanish spoken, nobody, but its trace continues in our day to day, in the words we say (such as curriculum, etc., ultimatum) or phrases such as cum laude, quid pro quo, carpe diem , etc.
Although Latin is not a living language in itself, that is, it is not officially spoken anywhere, although it is co-officially spoken in the Vatican, many people study this language today. For example, anyone who dedicates himself to languages will have studied Latin, since it is the basis of many of them and allows them to be learned faster. Latin: dead for some, alive for others
