Drako, older languages are more tradition than necessity. They are sometimes used because more modern language will provide words which have more specific meaning, whereas older languages have words with a broader spectrum of meaning within a few words. Thus providing layers of meaning within the wording of your spells.
But then again, a spell need not have words at all.
