The purpose of the present article is to analyze the functions of the Latin language on the Internet both as a cross-cultural communication phenomenon and as the subject of linguodidactics. The analysis of tendencies aimed at reviving Latin in online and offline modes is provided. Means of Latin application on the Internet as, for example, in broadcasting, linguistic educational programs, mass media, digital informational resources, etc. are considered. Methods of the research are as follows: collection and differential selection, systematization, classification. The result of the research performed is the classification of methods of Latin functioning on the Internet which demonstrates that Latin is gradually changing its status of the dead language and is becoming rather popular on the network. The results of the research contribute to the Internet discourse theory and linguistic part of the Internet discourse on the example of Latin. An assumption of a possible change of the status of Latin due to the Internet is considered.

Key words

Internet, Latin, mass-media, congresses, computer linguistic systems
