Abstract In this paper I will address the question of how Creole languages are acquired as fi rst languages (henceforth L1). I will focus on the acquisition of Seselwa as a L1 and discuss briefl y some implications of the fi ndings on the acquisition of Seselwa for the area of education. Before I do so, the reader will be introduced to the fi eld of First Language Acquisition (henceforth FLA), which belongs to one of the domains of enquiry in Psycholinguistics. Here we take the generative approach to FLA.
The methods chosen for this study will also be briefly presented followed by an analysis of the data. In the discussion
I concentrate on two points: first, the findings on Creole acquisition are related to FLA research, and second, I briefl y discuss the importance of these findings for Education.
