As we know, a pidgin grows up among people who do not share a common language. This pidgin would have been a makeshift, mixed language composed of elements of Jamon people's speech and that of the Yayoi immigrants. I must stress again, however, that as with the Jamon people, we have no reason to believe that there was a single Yayoi language. On the contrary, as people were disembarking in Japan over a period of some hundreds of years it is more likely that they displayed considerable speech variation.
In all societies and at every time, language contact and multi lingualism have been the norm. Likewise, Japan's linguistic history cannot be characterised by a linear progression nor by a single event but by successive episodes of language mixing. The view proposed here is that the Japanese language developed as a lingua franca in a multilingual environment. Thus, there is no indexable substrate language for Japanese since there was no single substrate; instead, Japanese developed from several speech communities possessing more than one language variety.
