The expulsion of Jewish in Spain led to intensive expansion of Spanish language and Christianity. Moreover, studies account that the expulsion of Jews in Spain relates to enslavement and extermination of indigenous people in Latin America (Ostler 23).

Some examples of Creole language include Africa-America, Vernacular English, Koineization, and West Africa Pidgin English. The development of Creole languages is attributable to the emergence of various socio-economic and political factors that include business activities, globalisation, and technological development. The Creole languages are formed through the integration of different languages. The differences between the rise of Castilian/Spanish and Cociopol status is based on the fact that Castilian/Spanish is a continuous process that involves intensive interaction while Cociopol status does not involve intensive interaction.
