    Ésta, al imponerse sobre las hablas aborígenes, sufrió notables cambios y. Así dio origen a una multitud de lenguas nuevas.
    dio origen = occasioned, caused
    I think so, this text is about one language of some conquer country on another o some like that. You know conquer imposes their language. And when the language conquer was combined or connected with other many languages, then it was caused/ occasioned many few different languages.
    It's ok?
