This is a collection of lists of extinct languages, languages that underwent language death and currently have no native speakers, and no spoken descendant. For historical forms of languages that evolved into more modern forms, see historical language.

Though the languages on these lists have no direct spoken descendant, some such as the Anglo-Norman language heavily influenced the development of a spoken language; in the case of Anglo-Norman, Middle English and Modern English retain many elements from Anglo-Norman.
