In this monograph the properties of the anaphoric expressions found in
Peranakan (ethnically Chinese) Javanese as spoken in the city of Semarang
are examined. This is the first detailed study of Peranakan Javanese and
the first monograph-length examination of anaphora in an Indonesian
language. Three types of anaphoric expressions in Peranakan are discussed:
true reflexives, "pseudo-reflexives" and pronouns. It is shown that the
distribution of true reflexives and pronouns conforms to Conditions A and B
of the Binding Theory (Chomsky 1981). The third type of anaphoric
expression, the pseudo-reflexive, however, appears to constitute a
problematic case for the Binding Theory.

Various analyses to account for the peculiar distribution of
pseudo-reflexives in Peranakan are considered and it is concluded that
pseudo-reflexives are anaphoric forms that are neither pronouns nor
reflexives. The distribution of anaphoric expressions in passives,
ditransitives, and the sing-construction (relative clauses) is then
examined, and analyses for various complications in the binding properties
exhibited in these constructions are proposed. Although a
semantically-based analysis appears on initial examination to account for
the puzzling behavior of anaphoric expressions in the three constructions,
it is shown that such an analysis is less adequate than an analysis based
on a combination of c-command and semantics. In addition, the use of
anaphoric expressions for non-local coreference is examined. The final
chapter of the monograph is devoted to comparing anaphoric expressions used
in Peranakan and those used in the Javanese variety spoken by Pribumi
(ethnically Javanese) speakers. A markedly different anaphoric system is
found in the language of Pribumi speakers.
