In the 15th century, the invading Spaniards introduced Spanish to Puerto Rico. Since then, the language evolved to become the most dominant in the country. Although its roots were that of European Spanish, Puerto Rican Spanish changed to be a different version of it. Puerto Rican Spanish doesn’t only have Spanish roots, but also Taino words, African dialects, and English phrases.

Between the 15th and 18th centuries, most of the original commoners and farmers in Puerto Rico came from Andalusia. So it makes sense that most standard Spanish used by Puerto Ricans today are Andalusian Spanish.The Canarian Spanish of the Canary Islands in Spain also has a significant contribution to the Spanish spoken in Puerto Rico. In the early 19th century, most immigrants in Puerto Rico were from the Canary Islands. These people’s Andalusian linguistic traits also contributed to Puerto Rican Spanish. More Spanish immigrants came to Puerto Rico in the late 19th century. Some of those who came were from the Balearic Islands, Catalonia, Galicia, Asturias, and other European settlers.
