There are no recent Gothic texts, though there are critical editions of 
fragments that exist which are of recent origin.

I'm not taking sides on the issue, but I am dubious that the scholars 
who are involved in the study of the Gothic language would be 
interested, or would put in any time. I think there is more likelihood 
of there being a native Klingon speaker in the next 10 years than a 
native Gothic  speaker.
