Kiswahili Documents of the use of Kiswahili date back to the era of the Zenj empire (tenth to fifteenth centuries), but Kiswahili has probably been spoken along the East African coast since approximately AD 800 (Nurse and Spear 1985, Marten 2006). Kiswahili eventually grew as an international trade language along the East African coast when Swahili maritime traders increasingly dealt with Arabs from the thirteenth century onwards. Kiswahili developed various dialects. The ones associated with those coastal city-states that became powerful in the early Indian Ocean trade, Lamu, Pate, and Mombasa are documented in poetry, and this regional variation is still visible in the regional varieties which exist in these regions today.

It developed into a trade language of the Malay archipelago from the beginning of the Malacca Sultanate in 1402, being the native language of the kingdoms along the Straits of Malacca. Malacca emerged as an important commercial port when the spice trade developed and was visited by traders from China, the Indian subcontinent, Burma, and Arabicspeaking areas. There existed a high variety of Malay, employed in literature or for administrative-governmental and educational purposes, but the spread of Malay during the height of the spice trade also implied diverse forms of language contact and resulted in diverse varieties of Malay.
