The Latin language was originally one of many tribal languages spoken in Italy, specifically by the people of the small area known as Latium. Inscriptions in Latin first appeared in the 7th to 6th centuries BC and are odd because they were initially written from right to left, or sometimes alternate…ly from the right and from the left. Most Italian dialects, such as Oscan and Umbrian, were of the Indo-European language family - except Etruscan which is apparently unrelated to any other language.

Proto-Italic was only slightly influenced by ancient Greek and Etruscan. (MORE)
