A Morpho-phonemic Analysis on Sasak Affixation
Keywords:Morpho-phonemic, Sasak, Affixation, Ngeno-Ngene dialect
The current study analyses the morpho-phonemic in Sasak affixation especially in Ngeno-Ngene dialect. This study is a qualitative research in nature. The data were collected via field linguistic method using three techniques of data collection: observation, interview, and note-taking. The study used a qualitative research method to describe all morphophonemic process of affixation in Ngeno-Ngene dialect of Sasak language. The results of the study revealed that there are two affixes that undergo morphophonemic process, namely, prefix be-, pe-, ng-, t-, me- and simulfix ke-an. Prefix be- can cause epenthesis (additional r ), prefix pe- causes epenthesis (additional n and mi) and assimilation ( kn), prefix ng- causes assimilation (k ŋ), prefix t- causes epenthesis (additional e) and prefix me- causes assimilation (pm). The simulfix ke-an in this dialect causes epenthesis in which there will be lexical addition ‘r,m,n’ when the simulfix ke-an is used.
