hello friends, The Ahom language is an extinct language. Also known as the Tai-Ahom, the language was once spoken by the Ahom people who ruled most of Assam from 1228 to 1826. It was then the sole court language of the Ahom kingdom and it enjoyed this status till about the 15th 16th century, when it made way for Assamese. The language fell into complete disuse by the 19th century and even the phonemics of this Ahom language has been lost completely

Arwi is an Arabic-influenced dialect of Tamil. this was once randomly used by the Muslim minority of Tamil Nadu state of India and Sri Lanka. As a spoken language it is extinct now, although a very less amount of madrasas still teach the basics of the language as part of their courses of study.
