Research in children with normal language development has shown that there is a certain order inÂ the production and learning of pronominal forms. To oneâs knowledge, there has yet to be a study onÂ the pronoun development of Indonesian speaking children whose native language do not distinguishbetween the nominative-accusative form (e.g. in English, I/me â Indonesian, saya/saya) and at the sameÂ time being gender neutral (e.g. in English, he/she â Indonesian, dia/dia). The present study follows theÂ personal pronoun development of a (Jakarta) Indonesian-speaking child from 24 months to 46 monthsÂ of age.
