Explanation:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingua_franca
A lingua franca is any language widely used beyond the population of its native speakers (....)
A related concept is that of a “vehicular language.” It is defined as a basic linguistic structure for proposed “international auxiliary languages,” for example, the use of an Indo-European language, or Indo-European itself, in the development of Esperanto. This is discussed in Umberto Eco's, “The Search for the Perfect Language,” Blackwell Publishers, 1995, p. 330 ff.
