Entertainment / Literature / Dead Language: In linguistics, a dead language is one that does not change any more over time--it is 'frozen' historically because it is no longer used in everyday discourse, but is instead learned only for ritual use, scholarly study, or the preservation of an ancient literature. Classical Latin and Sanskrit are two examples of dead languages. This situation contrasts with a living language, in which old words die out, new ones are added, and existing words change their meaning continuously over time from one generation to the next, as A. C. Baugh puts it (2).
