A short history of the Mauritian Creole language
Mauritian Creole is a French-based creole language spoken in Mauritius, and closely related to Seychellois Creole, Rodriguan Creole and Chagossian Creole.
The language developed in the 18th century when the French established a plantation economy on the island using slave labour. The slaves came from many different places, including West Africa, East Africa and Madagascar, and adopted French as their lingua franca so that they could communicate with each other.
Several factors (such as the small size of the island’s French population and the lack of education for the slaves) led to this language developing in its own unique way, influenced by the various native languages of the people that spoke it.
By the time the British took over Mauritius during the Napoleonic era, Mauritian Creole was firmly established. When slavery was abolished in 1830, many of the ex-slaves left the island and were replaced by Indian contract workers, who adopted the language and contributed some of their own vocabulary.
