"Remember what happened to all the other world languages: Latin, Greek, Indo-European? One day they�re on everybody�s tongue; the next day they�re dead."Erh. I think Greeks would object to that inaccuracy since they're still speaking "Greek" today. I assume by "Greek" you meant "Classical Greek". But somehow I think I know what you're going to say to that before I even send this email out: "It's all Greek to me"... hahahaha, sigh. :P
