"No, people in the Vatican learn Latin but only after they have learned Italian or another language." False. Latin is still spoken as a first language in a very small area in Romania. Romania has a very small population spread out over a lot of land, and so it is often overlooked that a small port…ion still does speak fluent Latin as the local first language. So there are not many people, but some is better than none. ( Full Answer )
The first language is a hypothetical concept known as Proto-Worldor Proto-Sapiens. it existed sometime between 200,000 years ago and50,000 years ago. It has no writing and it is only a hypothesis. It is also possible that different languages emerged at roughly thesame time in different parts of the …globe; it is unlikely that all modern languages evolved from one single parent language.At any rate, there's no way of knowing for sure, as writtenlanguage post-dates spoken language by thousands or perhapsmillions of years.

The origins of spoken language lie in our more developed ancestors and would have been a simple proto-language, not as complex as our language today (which has a much broader range of sounds and complex grammar). Communication would have began with the unspoken language we still use today, body lang…uage. Although we do not know what this first spoken language with grammar and syntax was, it is likely it appeared somewhere between 100,000 and 50,000 years ago in Africa. The first language of man is still part of us today. it is part of our primal vocabulary. words like mama! and the mmmm! and ah! sounds that we make when we come to an understanding are, all part of a our primal vocabulary. if man started in African then migrated then wherever it started is where language started. first we have to find out what is the old living language that can be understood and take it from there. In Africa I am sire there was a language that is still used today where you almost click and tick with your mouth i am sure that was used a long time ago. Boola boola "that means run" ( Full Answer )
All modern languages derive from earlier versions that changed slowly over time from older languages into the forms we know today. It is not possible to identify a specific date upon which any particular language was first spoken. In the case of the German language, the earliest evidence of the use… of Old High German as distinct from Old Saxon is found in inscriptions from the 6th century AD and the oldest coherent texts date from the 9th century AD. So the beginning of the use of some form of German as distinct from Saxon can be said to occur sometime in the period from the 6th to the 9th century, or perhaps a bit before that. It may be useful to note that the German spoken in the 10th century would be very different form the German spoken today. ( Full Answer )
Latin was the language ancient Rome, but Greek was used bythe upper classes who admired Greek culture. Greek was also thefirst language of the Greek cities in southern Italy (eg Naples wasa Greek city nea = new, polis = city). Greek was also the lingua franca of the east. Afterthe western …part of the Roman Empire fell under the weight of theinvasions by the Germanic peoples, the eastern part of the empiresurvived for a millennium. They called themselves Romans but spokeGreek and maintained Greek culture. As the empire expanded, other peoples had been absorbed, and thelanguages of the empire included those from Spain, Gaul, Britain,Germany, Israel and so on - dozens of languages and hundreds ofdialects. The language of Rome was Latin. Though, due to Rome's size anddiversity of peoples, there would be many other languages from allover Europe and North Africa.

The Roman Empire expanded over many countries, and those itdid defeat, it colonised, some Latin words passed into theirlanguage, and remain up until today. Perhaps the most influencedlanguage was the Italian Language, as Rome is in Italy, naturally,most of Ancient Italy were likely Latin speakers. Answer The Romans spoke Latin. In the early days of the Roman Empire theyspoke Classical Latin. During the reign of Augustus, more of themspoke Greek than Latin. A little later, Latin came back into vogue.By the fourth century Vulgar or common Latin was spoken. Itdiffered from Classical Latin. The languages are similar. Varioussounds changed. Answer The language of ancient Rome was Latin. Over the centuries, theform of Latin changed from what we now call Old Latin and two formsof Latin developed: Classical Latin and Vulgar Latin. The formerwas the official language and the language of the educated. Thelatter was the language of ordinary people and did not have awritten form.

The celtic language of Scotland is Gaelic, or GÃ idhlig. Along with Irish and Manx ( from the Isle of Man) it is part of the Goidelic branch of celtic languages. Whereas Welsh and Cornish are from the Brythonic branch. Gaelic came to Scotland between the 3rd and 6th centuries CE, pushing… the native Picts to the north and west. The Picts may have spoken a Brythonic version of celtic, over time the two groups merged into one nation, the Scots of today.

Europe has, and has always had, a wide range of languages. Europe has never been united with one language. Most European languages share common roots. Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and French are all derivatives of Latin. Whereas German, Dutch, English, Swedish and Danish are based on Proto-German. S…cottish and Irish Gaelic are derived from the Celtic language, Gaelic. The languages have developed in semi-isolation from each other but have influenced one another. For example the English word 'beef' is derived from a French word while 'menu' is an unaltered French word. Many English words are derived from French, but they were either picked up in usage or were brought by the Normans to Britain. The reason that there are so many German words in English is that the Saxons spoke a form of German, and, when the Normans invaded Britain, the Saxons became citizens of Norman England. The reason for the French words is that the Normans were originally Vikings, but they started speaking French after they conquered Normandy (named after the Normans). ( Full Answer )

The main three languages were Aeolic, Ionic and Doric , with their various dialects. When Athens came into power, Attic Greek was spoken. Attic Greek is the language of the Greek classics. When Alexander the Great amassed his army, he standardized the language so his troops could understand one another. This became Hellenistic Greek or Koine Greek .

Some scholars and historians believe Proto-Greek speakers who had migrated to the Greek peninsula somewhere in 2500 BC founded the ancient Greek language. There is another theory that says Greek language was formulated before the migration of the Proto-Greeks into Greece. ( Full Answer )

Unfortunately, recorded history didn't begin until the Roman invasion, in AD 43. No literature of pre-Roman Britain has survived, and no written language has ever been found, despite DNA-analysis of a human presence that can be traced as far back as 25,000 years ago, before the last Ice Age. So apar…t from the archaeological data, and assumptions drawn from what was going on in Europe, there's really not much to go on. Certainly, the settlements on Skara Brae and particularly the Knap of Howar testify to a culture that existed from 3700 BCE, pre-dating the Great Pyramid of Egypt and even Stonehenge. But as to what language they spoke, nobody can say for sure. Some believe the Celtic languages arrived in Britain around the 12th century BCE, however it is generally accepted the Celtic languages originate from the Hallstatt culture, which would place it closer to the 6th century BCE. Pictish, spoken mainly in the north, also existed during that period, but its origin is unknown and was considered extinct by 900 CE. While there were undoubtedly languages preceding this period, there doesn't appear to be any evidence of what they were. So I'm afraid the answer to the question is "we just don't know".

Latin would be the earliest British language however you must remember that what we now know as Britain has not always been British (the Romans used to own it). ====== The Romans conquered Britain between AD 43 until ca. AD 410 and during this period introduced Latin. However Britain has a cul…ture going back thousands of years before the Roman occupation (during which period Stone Henge was built) - DNA analysis has shown that modern humans arrived in Britain at least 25,000 years ago. These ancient British people had a language and culture of their own but sadly none of the pre-Roman inhabitants of Britain have any known, surviving, written language. Generically they are called Celts and there is a small amount of linguistic evidence of Celtic language that comes down to us from British river and hill names. ( Full Answer )
Originally Hebrew. Then Aramaic, which is closely related to Hebrew. Hebrew was retained though as a language of study and prayer.
It is impossible to know because writing developed thousands of years after spoken language. We only have a record of the last 3,000 or 4,000 years but humans (homo sapiens) have been around for 100,000 years. It is likely that pre-human hominids such as homo erectus had language.
Hebrew, until the late 1st Millennium BCE, when Aramaic (introducedby Persia) and and Greek.(by Alexander) became common. Hebrewbecame a ceremonial language used in daily prayer andTorah-learning, continually throughout the centuries.

They had their own Macedonian language, however the upper classspoke Greek. When Alexander was giving orders to a mixed army, hegave them in Greek, and there were interpreters to translate forthe Macedonian soldiers. Macedonians spoke Greek. . The evidence of the language of the Macedonians has bee…nreviewed and discussed by Kalleris and Hammond, Griffith and manyothers, all contending that it was a dialect of Greek ~ Cambridge-Ancient Histories From all the multilingual inscriptions found, none contained the"phantom Macedonian language" that some claim needed interpreters.Extensive excavations in Macedonia in hundreds of sites, privatecemeteries, religious temples have not uncovered any other languagethan Greek and in fact, they established the fact that theMacedonian dialect was a North-West Greek dialect. . The Macedonians were Greeks. Their language was Greek, to judgeby their personal names and by the names of the months of themonths of the calendar; Macedonian ambassadors could appear beforethe Athenian assembly without needing interpreters. George Cawkwell Emeritus Fellow university of Oxford . " That the Macedonians and their kings did in factspeak a dialect of Greek and bore Greek names may be regardednowadays as certain ." ~ R. Malcolm Errington, 'A Historyof Macedonia' - University of California Press, pg 3 . " As members of the Greek race and speakers of theGreek language , the Macedonians shared in the abilityto initiate ideas and create political forms." ~ N.G.L.Hammond "The Miracle that was Macedonia" pg. 206. Note: Recently, Aleksandar Donski, a propagandist of the Former YugoslavRepublic north of historical Macedonia published an articleheadlined as " AncientMacedonians Used Translators To Communicate With Hellenes ".This was a totally fraudulent and unfounded claim spreadingdistorted and mendacious disinformation. Livy wrote, "â¦The Aetolians, the Acarnanians, the Macedonians, menof the same speech, are united or disunited by trivial causes thatarise from time to time â¦" (Livy, History of Rome, b. XXXI par.XXIX). The Aetolians and Acarnanians were definitely Hellenictribes. On another occasion Livy writes "â¦[General Paulus] took hisofficial seat surrounded by the whole crowd of Macedonians â¦ hisannouncement was translated into Greek and repeated by GnaeusOctavius the praetorâ¦". If the crowd of Macedonians were not Greekspeaking, why then did the Romans need to translate Paulus' speechinto Greek? (Livy, History of Rome, b. XLV, para XXIX). Answer A distant offshoot of Greek. When Alexander the Great gave ordersto his mixed army, the Macedonians had to have an interpreter totranslate for them. Answer No written evidence - other than a few isolated words -has survived in the form of documents in the Macedonian language,so the answer is: we don't know for certain. We do know that commonMacedonian soldiers in Alexander's day did often not understand"Attic" Greek, the language of Athens and the Greek that is used bymost famous writers like Homer, Xenophon, Herodotus and Aristotle. Historians believe that Macedonian was a so-called "Indo-European"language, a sort of dialect of "Doric" Greek, the language spokenin the north of Greece, mixed with influences from other northernregions like Illyria. Macedonia's upper class however did understand and speak AtticGreek and that language gradually took over from the originalMacedonian language. All the inscriptions found in Macedonia suggest that theMacedonians spoke a north west dialect of the Greek language(Locrian, Aetolian, Phocidian, Epirote). This view was furtherconfirmed with the discovery of the Pella curse tablet from the 4thc BC. However it is informative that Alexander the Great's battle ordersto his troops had to have a translator for the Macedonian soldiersfor the dialectal differences. Note: In a scene from the Attic comedy "Macedonians", by the 5th-centurywriter Strattis, an Athenian asks Î® ÏÏÏÏÎ±Î¹Î½Î± Î´' Î'ÏÏÎ¹ÏÎ¯Ï;('sled-fish, what do you mean?), and a Macedonian replies"ÎºÎÏÏÏÎ±Î½ Î¼ÎµÎ½ Î°Î¼Î¼ÎµÏ ÏÏÏÎ¹ÎºÎ¿Î ÎºÎ¹ÎºÎ»Î®ÏÎºÎµÏÎµ" ('wha ye Attics ca' ahammer-fush, ma freen'). In order to appreciate the value of theMacedonian's reply, we must not forget that, as is clear from manypassages in Aristophanes, the Attic comedians made their non-Greeksspeak broken Greek with an admixture of barÂbarian words (some ofthem imaginary), while LacedaemoÂnians, Megarians, Boiotians andother Greeks spoke in their own dialects (albeit with a number ofinaccuracies). The Macedonian's reply is in good Greek with dialect(Î°Î¼ÂÎ¼ÎµÏ, ÏÏÏÏÎ±Î¹Î½Î±) and archaizing (ÎºÎ¹ÎºÎ»Î®ÏÎºÎµÏÎµ) elements. ( Full Answer )
