    This paper discusses the major role played by language learning processes in the birth of creole languages. The notions of pidgin, pidginization and creolization are examined in a language contact and SLA perspective. The evolution of the verbal system and of negation in the emergent French related creoles is compared with developmental sequences observed in French interlanguages.
