Mozarabic (Latín / לטן / لتن‎)

Mozarabic, or Andalusi Romance, is the name given to the collection of Romance dialects that were spoken in Muslim-controlled parts of the Iberian Peninsula until about the 13th century. They developed from Late Latin between the 5th and the 8th centuries AD. By the 13th century they had mostly been replaced by Castillian, which became modern Spanish.

The people who spoke Mozarabic called it Latina or Latín, and thought of it as a form of Latin. During the 19th century Spanish historians start to refer to Christians in Spain living under Muslim rule as Mozarabs and to their language as Mozarabic. The word Mozarab comes from the Andalusi Arabic مُستَعرَب, (musta'rab), from the Classical Arabic musta'rib, which means "who adopts the ways of the Arabs".

There was no standard way of writing Mozarabic. When it was written, the Arabic script was most commonly used, and the Latin and Hebrew scripts were also used to some extent. It was first written in the 11th century.
