And Latin's descendants (which are mutually comprehensible) are actually
the most widely spoken first language in Europe. I always thought Europe
should adopt Modern Latin (however you care to define it) as its main
(Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian put together are very similar and are
larger than any other grouping of similar European language, excluding
perhaps Russian which is spoken mostly by non-EU nationals.)
