Video-Fix: Lingua Franca- meeting each other halfway

October 6, 2019 10:57 am

 

Welcome back to our Sunday appointment! The video of this week introduces us to the Lingua Franca, a mediation language which usually flourish tanks to the contact between populations. Since neighbour nations have very often similar languages, the Lingua Franca results in a sort of fusion between them. In other cases they embed words coming from a very wide region, like in the case of the Mediterranean Lingua Franca, where the mercantile traffics compelled people to find an alternative way to communicate.
