I'm learning latin, wondering if anybody can speak it.

Course, I guess it's hard to speak latin when there are no words for anything that was invented after the language died.

Oh, but there are. The Vatican's "Latin Foundation" makes sure modern terminology gets reflected in Latin, still used as a lingua franca inside the Roman-Catholic church. The Lexicon Recentis Latinitatis should answer most questions you may have.

Hi!

I had been studying it for 5 years (1991-1996): it Italy it's compulsory if you choose certain high school types (scientific or classic lyceum). Anyhow, I don't remember that much. Interesting language (lingua pulchra maybe), though. ;-)

Michele.
