What do you call a language that breaks off from another language?
Not a dialect per se, but a language that becomes its own language?
It can be called a "descendant." So all Romance languages are descendants of Latin; all Germanic languages are descendants of proto-German, and both of these, along with Sanskrit and Hindi and others, if you go back more than 5,000 years, are in the Indo-European langauge group becuase they are descendants of proto-Indo-European. Other languages, including Finnish, Hebrew, and Chinese, are members of other language groups.
