What fallacy is “If Latin is a dead language, does that mean zombies speak Latin?” ?
John Nurse, Student of language and languages.
Answered Mar 19, 2016
The illogic of the original question is:

. Latin is a dead language
. All native speakers are dead
. Zombies are dead (well, sort of)
. So zombies speak Latin
