Former good article Latin was one of the Language and literature good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Natural language processingEdit

There is no information regarding natural language processing tools in the language tools section. I added a link and a brief description regarding the "classic language toolkit" package to this section JonathanSchoots (talk) 22:41, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Circular linkEdit

The linked word "Latin" in the following phrase only leads back to this very same page.

"According to Roman Mythology, Latin was established by a tribal people..."

Thank you for pointing that out. I'll change it. Dhtwiki (talk) 10:03, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Apparent vandalismEdit

Some recent 'edits' or 'revisions' show the need to ban/block anonymous 'contributors'. Peter Horn User talk 10:53, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

It's back to school time (readership is peaking during the school week, too). This page was last protected (for 6 months!) a year ago, but the edit history prior to that showed more vandalism than is happening now. I think we could wait to see if it ramps up. IPs can make helpful edits, and requests for same (see previous section). Dhtwiki (talk) 23:24, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Regulated by?Edit

The item Regulated by in the infobox is not correct. It is unclear to me that this is a useful field for any language except arguably French. At any rate, the PAL is not a regulatory agency and should not be listed as such. Rwflammang (talk) 19:03, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Unnecessary sectionEdit

Official status

Latin was or is the official language of European states:

  •   Holy See – used in the diocese, with Italian being the official language of Vatican City
  •   Hungary - Latin was the sole official language of the Kingdom of Hungary from the 11th century to the mid 19th century, when it was replaced by Hungarian in 1844. The best known Latin language poet originating from Hungary was Janus Pannonius.
  •   Croatia – Latin was the official language of Croatian Parliament (Sabor) from the 13th to the 19th century (1847). The oldest preserved records of the parliamentary sessions (Congregatio Regni totius Sclavonie generalis) – held in Zagreb (Zagabria), Croatia – date from 19 April 1273. An extensive Croatian Latin literature exists.
  •   Poland – officially recognised and widely used[1][2][3][4] between the 10th and 18th centuries, commonly used in foreign relations and popular as a second language among some of the nobility.[1]

I feel that this section is unnecessary. Latin has been the official language of lots more countries, but why only list those ones? – NixinovaT|C⟩ 01:08, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
