In this article, we present novel reduplication data from Tanjung Raden Malay (henceforth TR Malay) and provide a formal analysis of all reduplication patterns in TR Malay within Precedence Based Phonology (Raimy 2000, 2009). TR Malay exhibits three patterns of reduplication previously documented in other Malay dialects, such as Standard Indonesian and Riau Indonesian: full reduplication, CV reduplication, and C[6] reduplication. However, Tanjung Raden Malay exhibits six additional patterns. We claim that TR Malay has innovated the additional six patterns, and the three reduplication patterns attested in all varieties of Malay discussed here are the basic patterns. Our analysis puts forth a theory that explains the connections between the six innovated and three common reduplication patterns in Tanjung Raden Malay.
