The original Lingua Franca, or sabir, was a pidgin language used around the Mediterranean from between the 11th and 19th centuries. It was based mainly on the languages of northern Italy and southern France, with words from Spanish, Portuguese, Berber, Turkish, French, Greek and Arabic. It was first used by the Genoese and Venetians when trading in the eastern Mediterranean, and became widely used in commerce and diplomacy, as well as by slaves and pirates.
