Romance languages in the Ponant

Romance languages in the Ponant influenced each other.

Birth of Criollatina

To ease communication between peoples speaking other Romance languages, there were plenty of lingua francas spoken all around the country. Those lingua francas were called Criollatinas, more rarely Iberico. Those plenty of intercommunautary languages became normalized to give the Criollatina, which split into three forms : Western, Central, and Eastern. The Eastern dialects are more conservative than the western one, making the Eastern more comprehensible than the western.

Ay, si yu pudyera

e cruar per li fronteras

e jougar am los amigs

Ay si pudiereu volare

Ai, si jo pogués
ser un lliure ocellet
i creuar per les fronteres
amb tota llibertat.
Ai, si jo pogués
ser igual que els nois
i jugar amb els amics
sense pensar en la maldat.
