This study focuses on discontinuous partial reduplication in Perak Malay. The base-initial CV and final segment of the base are copied as a reduplicant, leaving behind some base-medial elements not being copied in consonant-final bases. This copying pattern is motivated by the Anchoring constraint. The neutralized vowel in the reduplicant is achieved by the demand of Reduce, while all base vowels are faithfully realized due to Id-IO(F). On the contrary, only the CV of the base is copied in vowel-final bases due to *VH prohibiting the copy of the base-final vowel. In Standard Malay, the reduplicant copies the base-final syllable intact. It is explained by high-ranked faithfulness constraints and OCP-PM, which bans the copy of the base-initial syllable. Reraking relevant constraints account for the different copying patterns in two Malay dialects.
