Romanic languages
The Romanic languages (sometimes referred to as Romance languages, Latin languages, Neolatin languages or Neo-Latin languages) are a branch of the Indo-European language family, more precisely of the Italic languages subfamily, comprising all the languages that descend from Vulgar Latin, the language of ancient Rome. There are more than 800 million native speakers worldwide, mainly in the Americas and Europe, as well as many smaller regions scattered throughout the world.— Excerpted from Romanance languages on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
