While I will not claim that Spanish and Irish are created or recreated for a
nation, about 600 years ago Sapnish underwent standardization of spelling and
about 100 years ago the Irish government began a push for the renewal of the
language. Spanish was neither dead nor truly stale, it just need spelling
standards. Since then, TexMex Spanish has exhibited numerous variant
spellings again. Irish never really died out in northwest Ireland, the rest
of the country lost use of it.
On a completely different line, lots of us are in the process of recording
languages which will not endure much longer. I am working on Atayal and Ute.
