Abstract

The ellipsis of sentence elements commonly happens both in Bahasa Indonesia and Japanese language. In Japanese, the common sentence element in which ellipsis occurs is the sentence element that is categorized into nouns, such as subject and object. Although noun ellipsis also occurs in Bahasa Indonesia, the frequency is not as many as in Japanese. This study, with the qualitative research method, analyzes the subject pronoun ellipsis that occurs in Indonesian novel Laskar Pelangi that is translated into Japanese. The subject matter is related to the characteristics of subject pronoun ellipsis in translation, such as the ellipsis types, position of ellipsis controller constituents, as well as functions and semantic roles of the subjects in which ellipsis occurs. From the analysis results, it can be concluded that the ellipsis controller constituents of subject pronoun can be on the right or left side of controlled constituent. Thus, it proves that in Japanese, the anaphoric and cataphoric ellipses are possible, although the number of cataphoric ellipsis is less than the anaphoric ellipsis. The functions and semantic roles owned by the ellipsis controller are limited to the functions and roles owned by the subject pronouns.
