This study investigates possible correspondences in the grammatical development of first languages, adult second languages, creoles, and historical linguistics (Baron 1977; Bickerton 1981; DeGraff 1999; Faingold 1996b). I aim to shed light on the theoretical implications of the relationship among child language, diachronic linguistics, and creolization, with the goal of providing a unified means to account for biological, psychological, and social aspects of grammatical development in these domains. This study attempts to explain the direction of morphological acquisition and change (Bailey 1996; Dressler 1985; Mayerthaler 1988; Wurzel 1989).
