One interesting aspect of relative clauses in Jakarta Indonesian is the peculiar characteristic of object relativization.
This thesis is concerned with a general description of relative clauses in Jakarta Indonesian based on naturalistic and experimental data from Jakarta Indonesian speaking children and adults. Jakarta Indonesian, the general colloquial language of Jakarta, was chosen for the study instead of Standard Indonesian because the informal varieties of Indonesian have not been given enough attention in the Indonesianist literature.
