Résumé

This paper addresses the problem of the emergence of productive morphology in creole languages on the basis of the case study of Haitian Creole. The aim of this paper is threefold: first propose methodologies that need to be developed in order to study the morphology of creole languages; second present a scenario of the emergence of productive morphology in these languages within the framework of what has come to be known as the relexification account of creole genesis (Lefebvre 1998 and the references therein) ; and third, address the current issues bearing on the study of the derivational morphology of creole languages on the basis of the data discussed in this paper. It will be shown that there are at least eleven affixes that can be argued to be productive in HC.
