Extensive Definition

In linguistics, a rememberer is a person who knows individual words or phrases (sometimes entire texts) of a dying or dead language, but cannot use the language productively. This is contrasted with fluent or full speakers, who have a good command of the language, and semi-speakers, who have a partial command of it.
