"Types of individual languages"
Historic languages: A language is listed as historic when it is considered to be distinct from any modern languages that are descended from it: for instance, Old English and Middle English. In these cases, the language did not become extinct; rather, it changed into a different language over time. Here, too, the criterion is that the language have a literature that is treated distinctly by the scholarly community.
