Isolated groups might still speak an old languages, but as humans doesn't speak "human", so Orcs do not speak "Orc" if they are spread over the world. Only written languages can stay on an old form (like elvish could like our world sanskrit but still succumb to phonetic changes), but oral languages will quickly change with contact. So you would have some general diplomatic languages (aramaic in the persian empire, french), trading languages (english, saka on the silk road) or academic languages (greek, latin, today english).
