Having similar phenomenon occurring in other languages, Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian) is quite rich of reduplication. It is a fact that reduplication is quite frequent in the lexically phonological systems of many good languages including Indonesian. Some linguists regard it as a morphological process rather than a phonological one. But it is not denied that it also involves a phonological modification of the morphemes which it has affected.
Being inspired by various reduplication types in the language and across languages, I am interested in observing the phonological and morphological interaction in accounting for the reduplicated construction; what word formations are involved and what phonological processes are required. In my point of view, it will be challenging the recent theories.

No theories or methods are fully supported by others. Each should have its strengths and weaknesses. Even Aristotle's well-known theory of tragic hero is confronted by many....., even by me....., hehehehee...
