Subject: References on Bahasa Indonesia

Dear linguists,

I am a postgraduate student conducting a research on
the speech perception and the speech production of
Indonesian native speakers when learning English as a
foreign language.

As a part of my study, I am interested in finding out
references on things as follows:

1. the position of Bahasa Indonesia (BI) among other
regional languages (e.g. national language,
first/second language, any native BI speakers),
2. the 'standard' pronunciation of BI or the type of
spoken BI which is regarded as standard,
3. the phonetic descriptions of vowels and consonants
in BI, and
4. any previous language acquisition studies on
Indonesian speakers learning English as a foreign

Thank you in anticipation of your kind assistance. I
look forward to receiving your responses soon.

Yours sincerely,

Message 2: Relativization by Deletion

Subject: Relativization by Deletion

Does anyone know of a syntactic treatment of relativization in 
English that uses a deletion, and not a movement, operation?

I have Jane Grimshaw's 1975 paper "Evidence for relativization in 
Chaucerian Middle English" but that is all I can find.

Your help is appreciated.
