It is commonly accepted that, prior to their expulsion from Spain in 1492, Portugal in 1496 (notwithstanding numerous subsequent migrations in this particular case) and Navarra in 1498, Jews had used as their vernaculars the Romance languages of the co territorial non-Jews. After the expulsion this « ; ; ; linguistic baggage» ; ; ; was taken to diasporas, where eventually a Judeo-Spanish koiné was formed (on the Ottoman Empire and Maghreb territories), using the Castilian as the basic language component. As for the other Ibero-Romance languages (Araginese, Leonese, Catalan, Portugese) spoken by the exiled Jews, they eventually became obsolete but nevertheless did leave numerous features in phonology, morphology, syntax and especially in the lexicon of the newly formed Judeo-Spanish koiné. According to some scholars, the strongest impact of the Aragonese and the Portugese in the Judeo-Spanish can be observed in the Sephardic communities of the eastern coast of the Adriatic (it is Dubrovnik, Split and Valona), Sarajevo and Bitola.
