Breathing life into Latin

Attempts being made to revive language that came close to extinction.

    Latin was the language of Roman Emperors and philosophers and years later, it had laid the foundations of modern European languages, literature and thinking.

    The language also came close to extinction but now attempts are being made to bring it back to life.
