Not wanting to get into too much of a discussion on natural language, but
the reason no one speaks latin is because it is now called French.

It has nothing to do with ideosyncrasies of the written grammar making it
too difficult to speak. The Romans had no problem with it. Latin just
evolved. Same with any other language.
