Despite being an interesting matter to study, Indonesian Phonology is rarely explored. The last almost complete work in the field is Lapoliwa’s, which dated back to the year 1981. Following Lapoliwa (1981), this study also tries to provide descriptions regarding Indonesian Phonology. The thesis aims at describing three specific aspects of Indonesian phonology, namely, its sound inventory, syllable structure, and phonological processes. Being descriptive qualitative in nature, the study describes that there are 22 consonants in Indonesian inventory system (i.e. /p, b, t, d, k, g, ʔ, s, h, l, r, ʧ, ʤ, n, m, ŋ, ɲ, w, j, f, z, ʃ/)—all of which are distinct phoneme—and 7 vowel sound, that is [a, i, ɪ, u, o, e, ə]—one of which, [ɪ], is allophone of /i/. In addition to sound inventory, the findings of the study also include some requirements for syllable-internal unit (i.e. onset, nucleus and coda) and how the requirements are fulfilled. Last, the study provides some discussions regarding phonological processes in Indonesian, which includes 1) nasal place assimilation; 2) geminate nasal deletion; 3) voiceless stop fusion; 4) velar nasal and voiceless alveolar fricative fusion; 5) voiceless obstruent fusion; 6) vowel nasalization 7) nasal deletion; 8) glide deletion; 9) schwa insertion; and 10) final obstruent devoicing. In addition to those phonological processes, the result of the study also exhibits some unsolved problems in the language, namely; 1) Liquid [r] deletion; and 2) Glottal stop phenomena.
