How many Latin speakers are there?

Not known

The exact number of Latin speakers is not known.  Many people consider Latin to be a dead language.   Keep in mind that Latin is still used in the creation of new words in modern languages of many different families, including English, and largely in biological taxonomy.   It is important to know that because of the Roman conquests, Latin spread to many Mediterranean and some northern European regions.  Do not forget the fact that many international auxiliary languages have been heavily influenced by Latin.
