In the old world, possibly it's the Ket language spoken in Central Siberia. It's a moribund language of the Yeniseian family, and the sole Survivor of this family, which might possibly represent the oldest remaining language stock in siberia (other languages have, possibly, over time edged out Yeniseian, which used to be spoken over quite a wide area). It's completely unrelated to any other language around it, exhibits complex verbal morphology, and theories exist linking it in the very distant past to Native American languages (the Na-Dene family) and Chinese. A few hundred people speak it now, so there are probably other languages around that are more "obscure", depending on how you define the word, but Ket is definitely special.

How much of the English language comes from latin?

This question is a bit complex and is not simply answered with any given ratio. While Latin may be the ultimate derivative of a little over half (about 55%) of the words in our English language, most of these words are very obscure and are not often used. In truth, English is a Germanic language, and, while the raw number of words derived from German may be less than those derived from Latin, almost all of the most basic one syllable English words, which are most commonly used, derive from German. Of the 100 most common words in the English language (words like the, a, I, tree, farm, etc.), only a handful come from Latin, while words that are longer and often more obscure are dominated by Latin. So if the frequency of occurence in the English language is taken into account, German comprises most of the language, even though Latin gives us more words in terms of sheer numbers. So if you want to improve your vocabulary, learning a little Latin can go a long way.
