Manx Gaelic: Chengey-ny-Mayrey Vannin
Manx Gaelic passed into oblivion as a native spoken language on the 24 December 1974 with the death of Edward (`Ned') Maddrell, the last reputed native speaker of the language. With him an Indo-European language disappeared, the first this century, one branch less on the tree.
