    Iba ang pagkakaunawa ko.

    Kapag ang isang Pilipino at isang German ang nagkita sa ibang bansa at nag-usap sa wikang Ingles, yung Ingles ang lingua franca nila. Hindi sariling wika ng kahit isa sa kanila, nguni't ginagamit para magkaintindihan.

    Here's how I may explain it. Lingua franca is the common language spoken or used in a certain field or environment or place by different peoples, by reason of tradition, practice and/or convenience. Yet each of those peoples can also speak another language and/or dialect specific or unique to another place/culture he/she comes from.

    Here are examples:
    1) Pedro, a student, comes from the Ilocos region who speaks an Ilocano dialect but in Manila, where he studies, the lingua franca spoken is Pilipino (a Tagalog-based language). The medium of instruction, as far as practicable, however, is English.

    2) Generally the lingua franca of international diplomacy or commerce is English but the each country’s political or business diplomat has their own native language. Thus, if French dignitaries or business investors were to visit us here in the Philippines the lingua franca would be English.

    3) In China’s biggest city of Beijing the lingua franca(of commerce, education and government) is standard Mandarin but China is so big that there are several languages or dialects spoken in its different regions like “Wu”, “Min”, “Cantonese” or “Xiang”.

    A dialect, on the other hand, is usually understood to mean a language spoken in a particular region belonging to a country which use a standard national language (or lingua franca), but which dialect is not derived or is not a variety of said national language.
