    Abstract

    This paper investigates reduplication in Indonesian. In particular, we focus on verb reduplication that has the agentive voice affix meN, exhibiting a homorganic nasal. We outline the recent changes we have made to the implementation of our Indonesian grammar, and the motivation for such changes. There are two main issues that we deal with in our implementation: how we account for the morphophonemic facts relating to sound changes in the morpheme; and how we construct word formation (i.e. sublexical) rules in creating these derived words exhibiting reduplication.
