I still chuckle a bit remembering the way Prof. Arguelles classified Classical Chinese as a variety of Korean.
Next are languages that I have not consciously abandoned, but which I do not currently work at systematically or directly, but rather only indirectly by subsuming them under other languages, which I place in brackets here: Gothic (Old High German and Old English), Romansch (Italian), Old Church Slavonic (Russian and Bulgarian), Ancient Greek (Modern Greek), Scots Gaelic (Irish Gaelic), Old Irish (Irish Gaelic), Sanskrit (Hindi-Urdu), and Classical Chinese (Korean). These are mainly older historical versions or dialectical variations of the larger or modern languages in brackets.
This was, of course, only from a reader's perspective:

As for Classical Chinese, I merely keep my passive recognition of characters alive by reading Korean.
