The survival of these Creole and Judeo-Spanish languages is explained by the feeling of belonging to a community, sometimes quite closed, in an environment dominated by other languages. And it is this feeling of belonging provided by the common language, which generates a relationship of trust that drives business initiatives and promotes commercial exchanges between the members of the group: a collective that strives to preserve its linguistic identity within a society that is ruled by another language.
