The Republic of Texas decided to remain independent from the United States. Though Texas kept positive relations with the US, a new blended Anglo, Hispanic, German, and Czech culture emerged. With increasing economic activity between Mexico, Texas, and countries in Latin America, a pidgin language developed out of necessity as a trade language in the Caribbean and Gulf coastal regions. Linguists mostly from the Confederacio de Tejas standardized the already simplified lingua franca and expanded the lexicon by adding terms from science, engineering, and more. The standardized language was then taught throughout the confederation and was increasingly adopted in international business. The language even spread to South America, western Europe, and western Africa.
